Insert one in your text then look at the Unicode in the info panel.
Hint: Adobe uses this code not per its original intended usgae, "Backspace".
Bingo! Thanks Jongware.
Now, why didn't I do this myself first? I know about the Info panel etc.
It's just that there's a whole bunch of special characters (can't
remember which right now), that share the same Unicode value. If I'm not
mistaken. So I'd given up using the Info panel trick -- too soon, it seems.
You can also use Special characters as in:
You are right there is an issue with different characters having same unicode value. Can’t remember which ones, though.
I know, it is a problem. He would need to do something like:
Not very elegant. I only mentioned it because I seem to remember that there are some characters that can not be accessed by unicode.

Break characters. Column Break, Frame Break and Page Breaks are all coded in ID as Paragraph Return (U+000D).
Here is my work around if anyone wants it...
I use special characters enumerations in a .jsx file, but I don't use them as strings, set the type to number to get it working.
Use it like this in your .jsx file:
/* after I've loaded the xml into textframes */
app.findPreferences = app.changePreferences = null;
var myFound = app.activeDocument.search( "I_want_a_right_indent_tab_here" ); /* you can put any code for right indent tabs in your textframes as long as you reference it here */
myFound.contents = 1397909876;
Here is all the special characters enumeration codes for CS2

Sorry, but I'm not enjoying that reference you gave. That site is a plain copy of my hard work, unattributed, and with advertisements sprinkled on top. It's a piece of blatant theft. (The site producer even refers to himself "an XML expert" -- ha ha. I would laugh if only it weren't so pathetic.)

I removed the link for you...
Do you have the Decimal codes on your site? That is why I pointed to the link which has been removed.
Here are the Special Character Decimal codes I use:
auto Page Number
next Page Number
previous Page Number
copy right Symbol
forced Line Break
right Indent Tab
indent Here Tab
end Nested Style
double Left Quote
double Right Quote
single Left Quote
single Right Quote
odd Page Break
even Page Break
Did you try my link? Of course I have the decimal codes on my site!!! That's the only reason they appeared on that copy-cat site in the first place!!!
