I concur with Philippe. Key Curry does not work at all for me using a
Japanese keyboard. Actually, about the only thing I can input are the
$-variants (C$..) the rest is just not picked up...

I don't understand why just using the actual input text wouldn't work.
Why do you have to use key codes, which cannot be reasonably expected to
match on many keyboards even in one region (hello <, > and |) , let
alone globally...
