Try this out:

import java.applet.*;
import java.awt.*;

public class test extends Applet{
   TextArea t;
      
   public void init(){
      t=new TextArea();
      this.setLayout(new BorderLayout());
      this.add("Center",t);
   }
      
   public boolean keyDown(Event e, int key){
      if ((e.modifiers&Event.ALT_MASK)!=0) {
         System.out.println("<ALT>"+(char)e.key);
      }
      else {
         t.appendText(String.valueOf((char)e.key));
      }
      return true;
   }
}
