I want to be able to bind more than one keystroke to the one action. The code below will bind ctrl+c to the action copyText. How can I also bind ctrl+ins to this?
KeyStroke controlC = KeyStroke.getKeyStroke("control C");  
Action copyText = textPane.getActionMap().get(textPane.getInputMap().get(controlC));

Here are some examples:

     "INSERT" => getKeyStroke(KeyEvent.VK_INSERT, 0);
     "control DELETE" => getKeyStroke(KeyEvent.VK_DELETE, InputEvent.CTRL_MASK);
     "control INSERT" => getKeyStroke(KeyEvent.VK_INSERT, InputEvent.CTRL_MASK);
     "alt shift X" => getKeyStroke(KeyEvent.VK_X, InputEvent.ALT_MASK | InputEvent.SHIFT_MASK);
     "alt shift released X" => getKeyStroke(KeyEvent.VK_X, InputEvent.ALT_MASK | InputEvent.SHIFT_MASK, true);
     "typed a" => getKeyStroke('a');
