Is there any way to program a key so that if you are typing within an

You can bind keys to the functions "inset-begin" (positions the cursor
before the first character in the inset) and "inset-end" (positions
the cursor after the last character in the inset). In both cases, the
cursor remains within the inset.
Also useful would be a way to exit the frame — landing at at the
first non-ERT character to the left or right of the frame.
To exit the inset, you can use "command-sequence inset-end;
But there's a catch with using inset-end or inset-begin like this to
move out of the inset. If the cursor is at the end of the inset already
then "command-sequence inset-end; char-forward;" will take you to the
end of an enclosing inset if there is one, or to the end of your
document if there is not, which can be disconcerting if all you want to
do is position the cursor immediately after the inset.
command-sequence line-begin; inset-end; char-right;
takes care of the case when the cursor is already at the end of the
inset (but still produces the big jump to the end of the document if the
inset is empty).
