In what way are PC keyboards necessarily limited to 3 levels? I can
easily construct a PC keyboard layout using MSKLC in which characters
are assigned to Shift+AltGr keystrokes. In fact, the standard
US-International keyboard comes like this.
Why does a 3-shift-state keyboard count as 1 group of 3 levels, but a
4-shift-state keyboard counts as 2 groups of 2 levels? What is the
difference, other than the fact that ISO 9995 says there can only be 3
