No, #\x still represents the lowercase letter "x".

Maybe it's confusing that the example has two S-expressions instead of
one, so I've adjusted the wording as follows:

  #\x ff      ; Unicode 120 followed by another datum, ff
  #\x(ff)     ; Unicode 120 followed by another datum, a parenthesized ff
