One possibility: Go to Emacs->Preferences, set Alt/Opt-Key to "None" and
set Command Key to "Meta". This has the disadvantage that it interferes
with the MacOS-Shortcuts for the Command key.

Another possibility: rebind the keys in your .emacs, e.g.

(global-set-key (kbd "M-5") (lambda () (interactive) (insert "[")))

Don't know if that always works in all modes, though.

Best possibility: Adapt your keyboard layout for Mac OS X, e.g. using
Ukelele. Your hands will thank you for it later.
