In (info "(coreutils) Character sets")

     =E2=80=98\OOO=E2=80=99
          The 8-bit character with the value given by OOO, which is 1 to
          3 octal digits.  Note that =E2=80=98\400=E2=80=99 is interprete=
d as the
          two-byte sequence, =E2=80=98\040=E2=80=99 =E2=80=980=E2=80=99.

OK but do add hex too. Hmm, I probably reported this before but can't
tell because I'm offline while I'm writing this, and it is too important
anyway for me to check vs. mentioning again.
