I've thought for a long time that the parser could create those constants
for you, using the C syntax or the Pascal syntax, but you're on v4 and FB1
can't get more modifications.

But you can use the UDF library that comes with v5, provided that it works
in your system. (Probably you would have to rebuild it). There's an
ASCII_CHAR function that produces a character based on its numeric position.
ASCII_CHAR(0) may work. I say "may" because 0x is tricky.
