Here I set up my AltGr key as "Compose" - for a-fada I use the
key sequence AltGr a ' - à la a. The various compose keys are
very reasonable - circumflex is '^', ''' is fada (accent aigu) '`'
is accent grave, cedilla is ',', ~ puts the nya in España, etc...
It also handles most of the iso 8859-1 (or -15) characters, and I
have ¢ and € with AltGr | c and AltGr e = respectively.
The magic to do so in X is to put
xmodmap -e "keycode 113 = Multi_key"
in the two files ~/.xsession and ~/.xinitrc (one is for when you
log in through *dm and the other is for startx).
