   There are several ways to represent any given character.  For just
a single character (not a string), a la '\t' in C, you would use the
#\U-0009 syntax.  In a string, a la "This \t is a tab" in C, you would
use "This \U-0009; is a tab".  The word after the slash in either case
can be either the ISO 10646 name in lower-case with hyphens between
words (for some characters, anyway), or U-XXXX, where XXXX is the
16-bit Unicode value in four upper-case hexadecimal digits, such as
0000 for null or 0009 for tab.
   I can imagine a variety of reasons for wanting a tab character in
your DSSSL script, but I can't imagine a need for the null character,
unless you're somehow reading or writing non-SGML data...
   I hope this helps.  If not, some more information on what you're
looking to accomplish would help.
