Accessing extended chars in linux

I want to ask is there any way you can access extended characters in linux? Like in windows we have ALT+(keycode). It that possible in linux? I have already seen programs like kcharselect but they dont provide this feature. How can i access extended characters in linux something like ALT+keycode combination in windows?

Thank you.

    Nothing Happens. I tryed pressing different keys after that but to no luck it just opens the file menu for the corresponding key.

    Under which platform are you programming? The terminal, gtk, or something?

    I would recomend looking at the manual of your platform.

    Well i am hoping to get it working in KDE or gnome. Our main aim is to enable the access of extended characters in OpenOffice 2.0. I have read a few posts about dead keys and so on. But couldnt get it working on my computer. I am using fedora core 4.
