That looks like decimalization of the non-ASCII chars in PETSCII...
that really isn't what I'm after.  I can just put the "art" in the
code as a hex dump (with embedded text strings to be read still
rendered as individual printable chars) for the same effect.

Perhaps I didn't describe clearly enough what I'm after... I'm looking
for examples of any sort of descriptive symbolic labels for the
non-printable PETSCII chars, much like one often saw "{RVS_ON}" and
"{HOME}" in printed listings.

It's unlikly there is "a" standard.  I was just looking for some way
to place these in some assembler so the "art" could be visualized in a
way that a hex dump cannot.  The assembler won't care either way.
It's for the convenience of the humans.
