Please note that Alt is not the preferred prefix name for Emacs
purposes.  It's Meta, abbreviated M (e.g. M-x), for two reasons:

1) Meta can be mapped to keys other than Alt

2) Meta can be invoked with ESC as well, which is very handy in a
terminal session (I actually use ESC all the time even in a graphical
session)
