Creating a keyboard Shortcut

I tried to make AltGr-e to be a shorcut for \[Element]. I run Mathematica 4.0 on

So I added the following line in .../

Item[KeyEvent["e", Modifiers -> {Option}],
      FrontEnd`NotebookWrite[FrontEnd`SelectedNotebook[], "\\[Element]"]]],

but this doesn't work. Only an "e" is displayed. If I enter the same
FrontEndExecute[...]-statement in the notebook, it inserts \[Element] as
expected. I tried "\[Element]" instead of "\\[Element]" and
some other variations too.

I remember to have used this in Mathematica 3 to get the {[]} working.

Any hints?
