Yes! Thank you! That was the ticket. I suppose there's a page out

Okay, you can look at the GNU Emacs manual section for the "kbd" macro.  This way looks fairly straight forward.

http://www.gnu.org/s/emacs/manual/html_node/elisp/Key-Sequences.html#Key-Sequences

I can't find the vector notation clearly discussed in the GNU Emacs manual.  I know it from XEmacs and just always preferred it.  As far as I can tell, it works the same in GNU Emacs.

You can read more about key sequence vectors in the XEmacs manual:

A note about your original question, the "^" prefix to skip-chars-backward is discusses in the doc string (well it links to skip-chars-forward, and discusses it there).  The doc string of functions and variables is a great way to explore Emacs.
