SUMMARY: Keyboard mapping problem

     My original question:
     ---------------------------------------------------------------------
     Hi,
     
     I've written a script in Tcl/Tk (a GUI language) which invokes a popup
     window which you can type in. When I press the "#" key, I get a pound
     sign ("") instead although I always get a "#" in my xterm.
     
     Any ideas?
     
     I'm running SunOS 4.1.4 on an IPX with type 5 keyboard.
     ---------------------------------------------------------------------
     
     
     For some reason shift-3 was mapped to "sterling" () so I just mapped
     it to "numbersign" (#) instead using the following command:
     
        xmodmap -e "keycode 39 = numbersign"
     
     I think xterm's must convert any "sterling" characters to "numbersign"
     characters instead but Tcl/Tk maps them properly.
     
     Thanks to the following for there help:
