And for X11, you can use the Compose way: hit compose key and two other (combinations of) keys in order (first Compose, then R, finally O, with my kbd config). Compose is Shift+AltGr (in my kbd), R is Shift+r and O is Shift+o (that is what I meant with combinations of keys). Run xev and start hitting all combinations you can think of until you see Compose (or Multi_key, that is the other name for it). The full list of combinations should be avaliable as /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/locale/<your-current-locale>/Compose. It is a great thing of X11, fast and easy to remember for typical combinations, but seems to get zero publicity, as well as the AltGr (Mode_switch in xev) one, which is like using shift, but to get other chars instead of caps (AltGr+s to get ssharp/beta ß, and AltGr+Shift+s for section symbol §).
