Preferences->Input Box->Interpret %nnn as ASCII value
does not work without also enabling
...->Interpret %C, %B as Color, Bold etc.

I've created a patch which fixes this problem, which
can be found at

    Both those options are OFF by default now and will probably
    be removed completely. The current method is to use ctrl-k
    for colours and ctrl-alt-number for any unicode char.

    What I like about the old behaviour is that you get to see
    readable character combinations (%C etc) instead of weird
    graphical characters representing a control character, and
    that %nnn does not rely on the X server configuration.
    But I suppose neither reason is really important.

    Yeah but %C and %XXX would appear in URLs alot and mess them up.
    ctrl-shift-xxxx shouldn't rely on your X config either, it
    just inserts a unicode char, regardless of locale.
    If the %-feature is left in at the next version, I'll add
    your patch.
