How do I get an ESC (escape) character on a DEC keyboard?

1. Use F11 on the LK201 or LK401 (in most keyboard modes).
2. Use Ctrl-[ (left bracket)
3. Adjust the keyboard mapping in DECterm, if that's what you're using.
4. Use dxkeycaps to produce commands for xmodmap. See the manual pages
for details.
5. Get an LK421-AA keyboard, a North American keyboard designed for UNIX
systems. It has an ESC key, no caps lock, and the keypad has
been removed so the keyboard is smaller.
