Remember that SC UniPad is a standalone Unicode text editor. Keyboards
designed for UniPad can't really be used with anything else.

Also, I haven't made my IPA keyboard for UniPad available yet, for the
reasons I mentioned: it's based on the images at (which are
somewhat difficult to interpret and which can hardly be said to depict a
"standard" IPA keyboard), plus there are several characters missing that
I haven't been able to find in Unicode.

If you still want to have a look at it, though, I can e-mail it to you
(and for that matter, to anyone who might be able to help me find those
missing characters!).

I have released six other custom keyboards for UniPad; anyone who is
interested should check <> for more
