typing high-ascii characters

In Windows it is possible to insert high-ascii characters (i.e. ASCII code > 126) using the ALT key and number pad. For example, to display the symbol for the UK pound (ASCII 156):
-turn numlock on
-hold the Alt key down
-type the numbers 156 on the number pad
-release the Alt key

Does anyone know if similar functionality exists in Linux?
