Could you please send the keyboard section from your XF86Config-4 file,
and the whole portion of your XFree86.0.log about keyboard
You may also read in /usr/share/doc/xfree86-common/FAQ.gz the question
"Why doesn't my '<>' key work?".  This seems to be a different issue,
but this section has nice instructions on how to investigate these
problems, e.g. you could tell us what is displayed by xev when pressing
Alt keys.
