How do you type the "Insert" key?

I've remapped Fn+P to "insert" (the original binding is quite useless):
Code: [Select]
xmodmap -e 'keycode 33 = p P VoidSymbol VoidSymbol Insert Insert'

Fn+P gives me = which is not what I would consider useless... but I guess it depends on what you type normally!

Depends on the keyboard layout. I'm using one that originally makes = available without Fn.

Ooops, sorry. Forgot about alternative keyboards.
