Hi Roger,

The oXygen regexp builder can contain any test so you can enter the 
characters directly.
To easily get such characters like Ⅹ you can use a simple stylesheet 
like below and write them as entities in the stylesheet and in the 
output you will find the actual characters that you can paste into the 
regexp builder:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" 
version="2.0">
     <xsl:output method="text"/>
     <xsl:template match="/">
         <xsl:text>&#x2169;</xsl:text>
     </xsl:template>
</xsl:stylesheet>

Best Regards,
George
