I have been unable to get mod3 to work on my DELL inspiron 
1700 laptop.

I have .xmodmaprc as:

remove control = Control_R
remove mod1 = Alt_L
remove mod3 = ISO_Level3_Shift
remove mod4 = Super_L Hyper_L
add mod3 = Alt_L Super_L Hyper_L
add mod4 = ISO_Level3_Shift

Which leaves xmodmap reporting:

shift       Shift_L (0x32),  Shift_R (0x3e)
lock        Caps_Lock (0x42)
control     Control_L (0x25)
mod1      ,  Meta_L (0xcd)
mod2        Num_Lock (0x4d)
mod3        Alt_L (0x40),  Alt_L (0xcc),  Super_L (0x85),   
Super_L (0xce),  Hyper_L (0xcf)
mod4        ISO_Level3_Shift (0x5c),  Super_R (0x86),  
ISO_Level3_Shift (0x6c)
mod5      ,  Mode_switch (0xcb)

xev tells me that Alt_L is the left hand alt key and that 
Hyper_L is the windows key to the left of Alt_L, but neither 
of these acts as mod3 in Xpp.
Alt_Gr which is just right of the space bar, gives me 
ISO_Level3_Shift, and does work as mod4.

Can anyone offer me any advice or ideas on getting mod3 to
