    In Unicode, 001B, 001D, 001C are defined as control characters, without
    defining their semantics and usage; see

    Are you sure that the keys actually send these codes? Names like "ESC",
    "GS", and "FS" that may be used in key caps do not necessarily imply that a
    particular code is generated.

    Typically, for example, 001B is used in applications to create low-level
    "escape sequences", consisting of 001B (ESC) and a few normal characters, so
    that the escape sequence as a whole has some control function.
