| I am confused about the behavior of code-char and char-code.

  no, you're confused about the print syntax of characters.

| Allegro CL Trial Edition 5.0 behaves like this:
| (code-char (char-code #\newline))
| => #\newline
| (code-char (char-code #\ø))
| => #\%x

  how come you didn't type #\ø and see what it printed out, too?

| Why is Allegro doing what it is doing, and how can I make it behave like

  (fill excl::*char-int-to-name* nil :start 160)
