Creating custom keyboard layout with xkb

I want to tweak my keyboard layout. I edit the file in /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols and add a new variant to the language.

But it doesnt work as intended. I have this line:

key <AC01> { [ a, A, colon, comma ] };

As Ive understood it, this will make the "a" button to print a colon when pressed together with altgr. But it does not. Can anyone help me figure out whats wrong? The other customizations Ive done works.
