> Hi. The manual section [[info:emacs#Modifier Keys]] says "the standard
> key bindings in Emacs do not include any characters with these modifiers"
> (referring to <Super>, <Hyper> and <Alt>). However,
> [[info:emacs#Inserting Text]] says "a working Alt key acts like `C-x
> 8'". Also, the wording in the latter manual section makes it seem that
> any key sequence starting with the `C-x 8' prefix works with <Alt>, but,
> according to my testing (with C-x @ a), that does not hold for `C-x 8
Thanks, I fixed these inaccuracies.
