If you have the appropriate charset converter installed, yes. If you're
on Windows, I think you need the apr-iconv DLL.

It did. It's in octal, and reads something like '–kx–kx' (the
dashes are en dashes), assuming your native charset is Windows-1252.

Quite why it's escaping the 'k' and 'x' characters, I've no idea -
I'm sure it should display them as-is (something like '?\226kx?\226kx').
