Thanks, but I would like to make a different change there.  These
bytes are used in the definitions of non-US keyboard layouts, and it
is convenient to see the actual characters show up there, not escape
sequences.  Is it OK to use some suitable DOS codepage encoding for
this file instead of UTF-8?  If yes, I will make a suitable change.
