Just for you to know, i don't see any @ on my french pc keyboard. NOr
naturally on my amiga french keyboard. 

I think both the @ and the # are under the key 3 and 4 or 2 and 3, can't

The prbolem i think is that X uses the Alt as meta key. We should be using the
Amiga keys for that, since there is no use for them anyway.

Looking at the qwerty sun keyboard beside me, i see there are 2 meta keys
instead of the amiga ones, or the windowy stuff pc keyboards use, and also a
compose key. 

But then better ask some more knowledgeable guy than me.
