Thanks for your help and suggestion.
Here is my problem.
xmodmap -e " keycode 119 = Escape"
The / becomes Escape however I have not been able to find any syntax which allows me to add the 0M to the keycode.
[$USER@$HOST:$PWD] ->xmodmap -e " keycode 119 = Escape0M"
xmodmap: commandline:0: bad keysym name 'Escape0M' in keysym list
xmodmap: 1 error encountered, aborting.
Thanks again for the suggestion.
