    I even mapped the escape key to ALT so that I didn't have to reach for it.

You can just use CTRL-[ to send the escape character. Your fingers never leave the home row and you don't have to mess around with alternate key mappings. You can also use this key combination to send ESC to Emacs. :-)

    Hmmm... That doesn't seem to work. '[' is AltGr-8 and CTRL and AltGr don't mix.
    How does he do it?

    Oh well - maybe it's just my keyboard - I never could locate the right Alt button either.... ;-P

      On my 101-key QWERTY keyboard the '[' key is to the right of the 'P' key. It sounds like you don't have the same keyboard as I do. 8-)
