In Scheme, strings are sequences of characters. Since you can't talk about strings without talking about characters, you should know that mzScheme supports the [Basic Latin and Latin-1 Supplement, AKA ISO-8859-1. There's work being done to extend the range of valid characters, but at the moment this is what's available. You can specify a literal character with the sequence #\ followed by the character, i.e.
500 Can't connect to 127.0.0.1:8778 (connect: Connection refused)
