IntroductionEdit

A keymap is a keyboard layout for foreign languages. Like for example the German keyboard has a different layout (the 'ä', 'ö' and 'ü' keys and other German special keys) and a keymap 'maps' the keys to the right characters for the programs.

Here is a list of the AROS symbol and the different Kickstart symbol shown for several key combinations.

Alt-1: inverted exclamation mark (¡) / superscript 1 (¹)
Alt-2: @ / superscript 2 (²)
Alt-3: £ / superscript 3 (³)
Alt-4: Euro (€) / cent (¢)
Alt-5: half (½) / quarter (¼)
Alt-6: three-quarters (¾) / half (½)
Alt-7: { / three-quarters (¾)
Alt-8: [ / bullet (•)
Alt-9: ] / left chevron («)
Alt-0: } / right chevron (»)

Also, in Kickstart pressing Alt and various letters shows a variety of symbols. With the AROS default keymap doing that just shows the letter itself.
