keyboard: additional key

is it possible to assign a simple key combination to the letter ñ (ntilde), 
which I need a lot when writing about El Niño....

I'm using KDE 3.3. (KDE-Redhat), keyboard PC105(intl), keyboard layout German 
(nodeadkeys), Fedora 2, on a Toshiba Laptop.

Kshortcut (in the control centre) doesn't seem to work at all. Trying to 
define something like Alt-Ctrl-N -> ñ simply doesn't do anything. But then I 
even the predefined example "Type Hello" doesn't work when I activate it - is 
there a trick? 

  xmodmap -e 'keycode 57=n N ntilde Ntilde' 
does not work either. However I can set:
  xmodmap -e 'keycode 57=ntilde Ntilde' 
but then of course I loose the normal 'n'.

Any other ideas? Thanks a lot in advance...

I'm a bit surprised that this letter is not assignet to AltGr-n by default, in 
the same way as AltGr-m -> µ, AltGr-s -> ß, AltGr-o -> ø etc... Where would I 
have to suggest this feature for the future?
