I also assume 'not', unless someone can present a valid use case for delaying the \c till inside the interpolation. I don't think the definition of Unicode changes so rapidly that we need to assume dynamic definitions for character names. :) In any case, one can always interpolate a closure to force late evaluation of a symbolic representation via any function of one's choosing. This doesn't seem like something that will occur frequently enough to need rehuffmanization. Larry
