Because I did not find this particular help page.

Because I don't know about the `i' command yet.

Because I thought `ö' to be an ASCII character. 
`7-bit-ASCII' would have been more precise, I guess.

Because I looked at the help page `Rebinding Keys in Your Init File'
that did not mention `unibyte' at all. Not even with a link to the

Because the example at the same page `[?\C-=]' worked.
(There is a bug. `=' is considered non-ASCII, which is wrong.)

Because the FAQ answers frequently asked questions.

Because the description
  10.3 Why doesn't this [terminal or window-system setup] code work
  in my `.emacs' file, but it works just fine after Emacs starts up?
