Re: encoding question

I don't really like that, sorry.
If someone else will have to look on the code, (and just let's suppose you'll have more such characters following each other in the source,... ), 'reading' what's supposed to be there will be a chore.
Instead, I'd emphasize in comments how the source code should be viewed _and_ what exactly should be seen.
Your solution makes it easier for the machines, but harder for humans.
I like it much more the other way round.
