Haskell Graphics.X11 keysym definitions

First look to see if the XMonad.Util.EZConfig module supports the key you are binding. EZConfig bindings use a more human friendly syntax than the default raw haskell bindings. An example is: ("M-S-<XF86AudioMute>", spawn "mute-it").

Otherwise, the hackage X11 package page has links to the current Types and ExtraTypes.* modules where keysyms are defined. Types contains the basics, media keys are in ExtraTypes.XF86, and international keyboard symbols are in Extra.Types.XorgDefault
