Best way of restricting typed characters

What is the best way to restrict characters being typed in or pasted in to the Syntax Editor?

Our editor should only accept 7 bit ASCII Characters (0-199, 200-255) due to hardware restrictions.

You can handle the KeyTyping event to cancel characters that are typed.

The PasteDragDrop event can be used to process text that will be inserted by paste and/or drag/drop events.
