ansiacce.tex does indeed make 39 and 96 active, since in ISO Latin 1
and Windows ANSI these are quotesingle and grave accent,
not quoteright and quoteleft as in ASCII or TeX text.
As has been pointed out this comes at a price. One is that you
should get rid of octal notation if possible (which is in most cases
a quaint holdover of no much practical use). You also need to deal
with prime in math:
\mathcode146="8000 % ^\prime
These definitions are for Windows ANSI, where these and many other
useful characters missing from ISO Latin 1 are packed into `C2' space
