Playing around with uemacs I noticed that some of the default alternative key bindings are set to the Fn key in combination with a different key (for example, an alternative for 'help' is set to 'FNh', i.e. press Fn and h). From what I know, using the Fn key as a meta key is not possible (since doing the command 'xev' and pressing 'Fn' does not generate any keycode). Is there a work around for using Fn in uemacs?

This FNh is an internal name in uemacs. It is not related to the Fn key on laptops. Which of the several uemacs/microemacs are you using? –  Gilles Jan 1 '12 at 19:32
It's from github, version 4.0.15. What do you mean by internal name? –  chimil Jan 2 '12 at 12:30
