Oops, I forgot to attach it.  Here it is.

7.  The UTF-8 encoding

Unicode characters that are not contained in one of the
approved standard encodings can be encoded using the UTF-8
encoding. The following escape sequences are used:

     01/11 02/05 04/07   switch into UTF-8 mode
     01/11 02/05 04/00   return from UTF-8 mode

The first is the ISO registered sequence for UTF-8 (ISO-
IR-196), the second is the ISO-2022 ``standard return''
sequence. While in UTF-8 mode, the UTF-8 encoding replaces
the currently designated GL and GR encodings. After return
from UTF-8 mode, the previously designated GL and GR encod-
ings are reactivated.

[This is the only ``other coding system'' used in Compound

[This is an XFree86 extension introduced in XFree86 4.0.2.]
