      In keymap files, it seems to work on Linux too (I use it in my owncoded
      "phonetic" keymaps for Arabic and Russian); but I was talking of
      double-quoted strings.

      These Arabic and Russian keymaps aren't above U+FFFF but anywhere above
      0x7F the <Char- > notation gives me problems inside double-quoted
      strings. I believe this is related to the documented fact that "\xnn"
      doesn't give valid UTF-8 values above 0x7F -- use "\u00nn" instead.

      Best regards,
      If God is perfect, why did He create discontinuous functions?
