Answer: Note: The list of codes below _should_ contain a backslash before

I've xmodmapped a few accented characters onto my keyboard. They've worked
fine in most every window, but were dead in the Motif applications linked with
X11R6.  My LC_CTYPE has always been set to iso_8859_1, so that was not the
problem.  It turns out that I can activate the keys by patching
$XLOCALEDIR/iso8859-1/Compose to also include the lines listed below.
