Thanks for the swift response.
I tried your suggestion, but unchecking the "use the system keyboard
layout" preference in the X11.app doesn't help in Wing IDE (i.e.
the combination alt-3 produces no output), and also prevents me from
being able to get '#' in an xterm. On the other hand, I found that I
keep the "use the system keyboard layout" preference checked and
also select the US locale option from the Apple Input menu, then
hitting the '£' symbol on my keyboard (i.e. shift-3) does allow me to
get '#' in the Wing IDE editor. This is OK as a workaround, but I
would be curious to know if there's a better solution.
