I do not see a practical way to handle such a utility..... take (for
example) Windows 2000, with its almost 100 keyboard layouts, each having 1-8
different physical mappings depending on the state of shift keys, etc. up at
This means that there are probably several hundred keyboards that contain
the Unicode character U+0041, for example. How can you have a simple mapping
in an environment like that?
