Exclamation modification to .Xmodmap

I am working on setting some user specific keys by modifying .Xmodmap in the user's home directory so the users have a more convenient way of moving around in their Netscape application and am having a bit of trouble.

I have successfully changed the '+' adjacent to the numeric pad to return Tab and the '*' adjacent to the numeric pad to return Escape. I want to change the '-' adjacent to the numeric pad to return Shift+Tab (back tab). I used xev to view what is returned by the combination of Shift and Tab (ISO_Left_Tab) and tried setting the '-' to return this value. This works in xev, but not in Netscape which is where the application is running.

Any suggestions on how I get this to work?
