Can't tell you right now, I am at work. It is a mix of accented characters,
symbols and numbers. Some characters do appear twice.

I should... what? Build through a new keymap or add code for the support of
other keyboard. I am not clear on the meaning of your sentence.

My old patch did that, by providing extra transcoding. SDL seems to work
correctly when you are not changing platforms, but here we are trying to
emulate a PC keyboard under windows when the hardware is a Apple keyboard under
OSX. I can't expand more since I haven't studied the 0.6.1 code and I don't have
