- In regular X Windows
- I've bound it to an unused key. First, add 0x100000 to the Unicode code point in question, then bind that value to a keycode.
- xmodmap -e 'keycode 117 = 0x1000301'
- In GNOME
- Hold CTRL + SHIFT, then press 3, then 0, then 1, then release
- In gVim
- CTRL + V, u, 0, 3, 0, 1

X Windows and Unicode
X Windows does seem to support Unicode input. For learning a foreign language, often times an accent mark is put over a letter to indicate syllable stress (lookup diacritical marks if you're interested in more). Anyway, to put an accent over a vowel, placing U+301 after the vowel in question will place the accent mark.
