I assume the kbd works elsewhere?

may be font or locale setting - may be console configuration.

Here is my config - seems much more comprehensive ...

Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier "Keyboard1"
    Driver "kbd"
    Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
    Option "XkbLayout" "us"

    # For most OSs the protocol can be omitted (it defaults to "Standard").
    # When using XQUEUE (only for SVR3 and SVR4, but not Solaris),
    # uncomment the following line.

    # Option     "Protocol"      "Xqueue"

    Option "AutoRepeat" "500 30"

    # Specify which keyboard LEDs can be user-controlled (eg, with xset(1))
    # Option    "Xleds"      "1 2 3"

    # Option "LeftAlt"     "Meta"
    # Option "RightAlt"    "ModeShift"

    # To customise the XKB settings to suit your keyboard, modify the
    # lines below (which are the defaults).  For example, for a non-U.S.
    # keyboard, you will probably want to use:
    # Option "XkbModel"    "pc105"
    # If you have a US Microsoft Natural keyboard, you can use:
    # Option "XkbModel"    "microsoft"
    # Then to change the language, change the Layout setting.
    # For example, a german layout can be obtained with:
    # Option "XkbLayout"   "de"
    # or:
    # Option "XkbLayout"   "de"
    # Option "XkbVariant"  "nodeadkeys"
    # If you'd like to switch the positions of your capslock and
    # control keys, use:
    # Option "XkbOptions"  "ctrl:swapcaps"

    # These are the default XKB settings for Xorg
    # Option "XkbRules"    "xorg"
    # Option "XkbModel"    "pc105"
    # Option "XkbLayout"   "us"
    # Option "XkbVariant"  ""
    # Option "XkbOptions"  ""

    # Option "XkbDisable"

    Option "XkbRules" "xorg"
    Option "XkbOptions" "compose:rwin"
