What is exactly your problem ?

Keysyms are locale-dependent; that is in order to use a Polish keyboard
whihc has latin2 keysysms you need to set the locale to some latin2 one
(polish locale for exemple), *before* launching X11. (as XKB is handled by
the X server).

If you use xmodmap instead of XKB you also need to set the locale, but
before calling xmodmap this time.

You aren't very descriptive; please tell us exactly what you type in both
cases. And which keyboard do yo utry to use (I've seen some wrong polish
xmodmap keyboard files out there, using latin1 keysyms instead of latin2 ones)
