I am using a 40 key keyboard called daisy, I want to have a consistent layout of all my keyboards. The tab can't modified to other keys is kind a waste of resources.

The relevant part in .Xmodmap is:

clear Mod5
! 47 is the ; key on the keyboard
keycode 47 = ISO_Level3_Shift ISO_Level3_Shift ISO_Level3_Shift ISO_Level3_Shift ISO_Level3_Shift ISO_Level3_Shift
add Mod5 = ISO_Level3_Shift
keycode 23 = Tab ISO_Left_Tab Next Next Next Next

But press ; + Tab is still insert Tab. How to make it Next?

Use xev I get this while pressing ;+tab and shift+tab
