For danish, picking the layout "Danish (Win keys) has pipe key reachable 
as AltGr+= (where AltGr is the right Alt key).

I also set "Menu" (which is the key between right Alt and right Ctrl) as 
compose key.  That enables a range of additional key combos (but pipe 
unreachable as it requires ^ directly reachable which in danish layout 
in Shift'ed).
