  • High-bit Latin-1 chars will be converted to the appropriate character reference, unless there is an appropriate ASCII version hardcoded in the code (like 'curly quotes' -> 'straight quotes' ... suck it up!).

    In Extrans and Code modes (and ECODE tags), which do not allow any character references, those character references will turn into literal text, like «, because why would you use that character in Code anyway? Silly.
