%D The \type {\tochar} commmand takes a specification:
%D \starttabulate[|l|l|l|]
%D \NC e \NC entity                   \NC e:eacute \NC \NR
%D \NC x \NC hexadecimal unicode      \NC x:013D   \NC \NR
%D \NC d \NC decimal unicode          \NC d:123    \NC \NR
%D \NC s \NC hexadecimal index (slot) \NC s:210D   \NC \NR
%D \NC i \NC decimal index            \NC i:456    \NC \NR
%D \NC n \NC name                     \NC n:eight  \NC \NR
%D \NC c \NC name                     \NC c:x      \NC \NR
