Re (1): I think you originally meant {0, 255} for ANSI (or another 8-bit encoding); you'll want {0, 127} for ASCII and {32, 126} for printable ASCII.

Re (2): For passwords, I would think doing anything other than printable ASCII is very likely to run into problems when using/entering the password. There can even still be some restrictions (depending on the password processor) that disallow parts of printable ASCII, e.g. disallowing anything that is not a letter or number.
