I'm trying out Wing IDE Professional 2.1.4-2 on MacOS 10.4.8 (and  
Apple X11 1.1.3), and generally very happy with it. However, I've hit  
the same keyboard problem as was reported in a post to this list way  
back in 2003:

I have an Apple UK keyboard, and also have to use alt-3 to get a '#'  
symbol. This works fine in an xterm, but not in the Wing IDE editor  
window. I'm using the OSX personality in the keyboard preferences.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
