Ok, so "\9\8\7" is a bit weird.  (It just happens to work though.)
But in fact you might want to put a \0 in a real string.  How about
a new example:

char translate[] = "these\0those\0this\0that\0";

The two "\0"s in a row are an end marker.  Someone might then write
something to translate words ("these" => "those", "this" => "that").
