dear all,

i've been really getting into entering stuff using the escape key.  i've
found that esc-a-esc give an alpha, for instance.

i can enter all the greek letters, hbar, I and some other things.

i'd like to use this for EVERYTHING, since it's faster than using a palette.

how can i find a list of all the escape key sequences (like for the fraction
bar and exponentiate palette key?)
