Keys on keyboards should be referred to in a proper way, as laid out in ISO
9995.

Cf. my suggestion to a keyboard solution for the non-ideogrpahic parts of BMP,
http://www2.isl.uit.no/trond/tast.html

The basic system of key referral is as follows:
 00 01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 10 11 12
E 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0
D q w e r t y u i o p
C a s d f g h j k l
B z x c v b n m , .
A

Thus, "r" is D04. For a thorough definition, see iso 9995.

Referring to the US keyboard is of no use to the rest of us, since we do
not know what it looks like.
