Hi Ingo,

I would have expected the *output* font numbering to cause even
more serious trouble than the *input* encoding.  Besides, not being
a masochist to that degree you appear to assume, i prefer this

   printf "a\\\\N'9'b" | groff -T pdf > tmp.pdf

After that, the file tmp.pdf displays three characters:

   The letter "a", the Euro-sign (oops!?), and the letter "b".

Wow! I'll redirect /dev/zero into the part of my memory where \N'n' is lying around.

I expect we are soon going to dissuade Alejandro from his plan.  :)

Yup.  Well played!
