PmWiki writes pages with '<' encoded as %3c (to help with security),
but it doesn't require that <'s be encoded that way in order to be
able to read the page.
If one wants to be able to read the page files directly, then it should
be able to convert any %xx sequence into its corresponding character.
The only characters that presently appear are newline (%0a), percent (%25)
and less than (%3c), but it's possible we would add more in the future.
