xmodmap is the underlying magic.
Are you running Linux? If so, then recent versions of KDE and GNOME
have an applet (called "International Keyboard" or something similar)
which you can stick on your panel; clicking on this (or typing the
special hot-key) toggles your keyboard mapping. Look around in your
menus for this little tool, it's really easy.
