MESS 0.106 for Windows uses the Esc key for BREAK with both emulated and 
natural keyboard on my system. End will also work with an emulated keyboard.

It is possible to change the emulated assigned keys once the program is 
running via the menu bar.

What OS and MESS version are you using? What keys have you been trying? 
What was running on the "Coco" when you were testing your key? Perhaps 
there is a problem with your Basic program rather than MESS.
