I want to define a key binding on

$mod+shift+(comma and less than) key

how ever, I don't know how to name (comma and less than) key when shift is pressed.

further, is there any table we can source the name of all keys? some of them are really tricky e.g., (left bracket and left curly bracket)

You can use xev for finding the key name. The name does not need to be adjusted when using Shift.

I believe the name actually does need to be adjusted in older versions of i3.
