I think the vector notation is a good choice:

        (global-set-key [C-∫]           'backward-sexp) ; A-C-b
        (global-set-key [M-S-return]    'other-window)
        (global-set-key [f1 f5]         'apropos-variable)
        (global-set-key [f3]            'compare-windows)
        (global-set-key [A-f1]          'replace-string)

That looks and sounds straightforward enough.

I don't know elisp. Is there an exhaustive list of how to express all of the key chords using vector notation? For instance, I wouldn't have guessed that the 'return' key was denoted by 'return' - I usually see it written RET.

As to my problem with C-; I strongly suspect my binding is getting stomped by C++ mode. So I'd also appreciate some guidelines on what keys to use or avoid.
