This is great.

"\xcafe" in the entry for "Escape" is a cute in-joke for experts, but an unfair trap for noobs or people for whom English is not their first language.  Could it be replaced by something with at least one 1-9 digit at the start?

e.g. anything from here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Latin_Extended-A or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Latin_Extended-B

I think the problem is the "[=====]". What is "a pair of [=====]"?

[=====] some text [=====]?

[=====  some text  =====]?

[=====[ some text ]=====]?
