and a few others in the next few paragraphs, in order to include hex
escape sequences in them.)
If a range starts with a unibyte character @var{c} and ends with a
multibyte character @var{c2}, the range is divided into two parts: one
is @samp{@var{c}..?\377}, the other is @samp{@var{c1}..@var{c2}}, where
