I'm not an expert with this keyboard configuration yet. Since xkb setting
files seem to be under-documented, I'm trying to make my way through them.
I'm trying to find a fix for this. The default X mappings for Mac keyboards
are not perfect since I think ALT is misused (the Command key should be used
instead). Therefore, I wonder if it would not be more appropriate to use the
Command key as "Alt_L" and leave the Alt key for what it is really used
under MacOS, that is access additional characters on the various keys.
