I'll just mention that 'latin1' can never fail to decode a string. All
8-bit bytestrings have a valid Unicode decode from 'latin1', though
sometimes they will involve control characters. (Put another way,
'latin1' looks at one character at a time, and has all 256 mappings =>
UTF-8 can sometimes fail, because it uses multiple characters. Thus
every possible string is not valid in UTF-8.
ASCII can fail because it cannot map characters with the 8th bit set
(though I'll mention that anything in ASCII is identical in UTF-8).
