    No offense taken (but thanks for the clarification), just wanted to understand your reasons. Similarly, I don't mean to cast aspersions on MSKLC -- it was written to allow people to design keyboards for the specific WinNT keyboard dll architecture and does a very nice job of that. Unfortunately that same architecture was designed many years ago and is simply inadequate for some languages -- and I think also for a "superlatin" keyboard :)
