That doesn't seem to want to work here, Nigel.  It takes a second keystroke 
after the first o which has no response, but the second o, while still 
holding the left alt+left-shift+:, spits out a single uppercase O.  And in 
kmails composer, that keystroke combo opens the 'options' menu in the 
composer.

I miss my old amiga, it had a valid character for almost any keyboard combo 
you could think of.
