This is the normal behaviour of HTA$ and ASC$: HTA$ returns the string CHR$(0)&CHR$(0)&CHR$(0) (which is NOT a null string), and the non-ASCII CHR$(0) characters are not removed by ASC$ but replaced by a period "." . Not two bugs the same day !

Regarding the (real) RED$ bug, it was introduced in the JPC ROM X (or Ex), and is present in all versions F.
Also the bug happens with RED$(" "), CENTER$(""), CENTER$(" ").
RED$ and CENTER$ work fine in JPC ROM D (and previous versions), as well as in the original DESAL Lex.
The JPC ROM version X fixed a lot of bugs, but this is the first known bug *introduced* by version X.
