With xmodmap and xev you can investigate some settings valid for X11 and how 
they work You can also set the X server's behaviour. (GNU Emacs, when launched 
as an X client, does not read key presses and releases but receives key events 
from the X server – and these are already a bit translated from what your 
fingers perform.)



If my theory of relativity is proven successful, Germany will claim me as a 
German, and France will declare that I am a citizen of the world. Should my 
theory prove untrue, France will say that I am a German, and Germany will 
declare that I am a Jew.
