OK. Extra credit time here... I have several ostensibly text documents
that, when opened with vim, are littered with blue <92> sequences where
single quote (apostrophe) characters should be. (There are others
besides <92>, but if I can fix one I can fix them all.) I'll assume that
92 is the ASCII decimal code for the single quote character.

How does one designate a compound representation for a single character,
such as vim's <92>, a find & replace statement? Hint: specifying the
target as \<92\> does not work.
