The four values after @samp{Char:} describe the character that follows
point, first by showing it and then by giving its character code in
octal, decimal and hex. For a non-@acronym{ASCII} multibyte character, these are
followed by @samp{ext} and the character's representation, in hex, in
followed by @samp{file} and the character's representation, in hex, in
the buffer's coding system, if that coding system encodes the character
safely and with a single byte (@pxref{Coding Systems}). If the
character's encoding is longer than one byte, Emacs shows @samp{ext ...}.
character's encoding is longer than one byte, Emacs shows @samp{file ...}.
However, if the character displayed is in the range 0200 through
0377 octal, there's a case that it actually represents an invalid
UTF-8 byte. Emacs represents such a byte in a buffer by a sequence of
8-bit characters, but displays only the original invalid byte in octal
form. In such a case, Emacs shows @samp{part of display ...} instead
of @samp{file}.
@samp{point=} is followed by the position of point expressed as a character
count. The front of the buffer counts as position 1, one character later
