Description:
As to evolve the ideas in bug #20377, I'd ask to implement
string syntax as close to the C language as possible, to make
"\xHH" and "\OOO" treated as symbols with respective hex and
octal code numbers.
It would be needed to enter national language-specific chars
at any console terminal, platform-independently, and mixed
with standard chars.

Why to invent a bycicle with "numeric hex literal notation"?
