    There are several problems with the keyboard input and YM.
    I am aware of these:
    - Romanian characters S and T with comma below cannot be entered from
    keyboard (a question mark will appear instead), but they can be copied
    and pasted from other Unicode application; the recipient sees them
    correctly, assuming the font used has the required glyphs
    - the AltGr key is treated as Ctrl key in the first place, so that it
    is impossible to generate:
      - character A with breve, using the Romanian (Programmers) keyboard
        layout available in Windows Vista
      - character A with diaeresis, using the Hungarian keyboard layout
