Ok, there are a lot of alternatives, but with `kbd' you're always on the
safe side.  Simply do `C-h k <key you want to bind>'.  That will show
you the right synctax for `kbd'.

Example: `C-h k C-c M-t' echoes

  C-c M-t is undefined

So you cold use

  (define-key foo-bar-map (kbd "C-c M-t") 'some-command)

Bye,
