Above I'm referring to both in different places. Below is the specific test.

Here's what I did:

1. test ASCII FF; the following prints as two pages:

	abc
	<FF>
	def

2. test Unicode FF; the following prints as one page:

	abc
	[000c]
	def

To type unicode, I typed the following:

	0 1 2 <alt-x>

Am I missing something? (I'm new to UTF)...
