Sending function keys (F1-F12) over SSH

http://unix.stackexchange.com – I have a Fedora machine that I can SSH to. One of the programs I'd like to use occasionally uses the function keys. The problem is that I'm SSH'ing from an Android tablet (ASUS Transformer Infinity) with a physical keyboard, but no F1-F12 keys. So, until the terminal app I'm using (VX ConnectBot) decides to add them as a feature, I'm looking for a way to send them using the rest of the keyboard. I can use all printable ASCII characters, Esc, Ctrl, Shift, Enter, and Tab. (HowTos)
