Thank you! That was exactly what I needed. And I can attach those
keypresses to simpler sequences using the standard OO macro facility.

Now that didn't work. I expect you wanted a German sharp S, but what I
see is the third and fourth letters in the second word are a capital A
with a tilde above it and a capital Y with an umlaut. And most of the
special characters in the body of your message looked odd too, that is,
not what you clearly intended them to look like.
