    And those of us who are Mac OS X oriented have patched our console and X
    keycodes to match the mac way of generating symbols:

    Alt-\ = «
    Alt-Shift-\ = »
    Alt-Shift-+ = ±

    If only someone could come up with a good character palette like exists
    on that OS, something that could generate a wide variety of keysyms,
    preferably all of UTF-8, and send them to the topmost window.

    because that
    would also stop them from doing clever things.
