[Zope-dev] Character codes

when displaying the raw content of a list with this code:

   <dtml-call "REQUEST.set('myOptionList',['', '', '', ''])">
   <dtml-var myOptionList>

(The list values are extended characters for French accented letters. They 
may not display correctly in your mailer.)

I get this output:

   ['\351', '\340', '\371', '\350']

So internally these characters are mapped to character codes. Where can I 
find reference information about this mapping system?
