    See /usr/openwin/include/X11/Suncompose.h [ref: look up 'special
    characters' in OpenOffice help]

    The above file contains the sequences of keys to press in order to get
    the various characters, e.g. compose, *, a to produce .

    To make a particular key--here the one with keycode 113--behave as the
    compose key:

    $ xmodmap -e "keycode 113 = Multi_key"

    Put this in your ~/.dtprofile.

    To get the keycodes, run /usr/openwin/demo/xev!

    Is there a "default" compose key? (Think: PC keyboard, 101-key or
    later).
