Here I am lost. Context has nothing to do with hardware?
I just say that I am quite unhappy to miss on my keyboard keys permitting
me to properly type my own language. What is interesting me is therefore to
study the different charsets (as defined by RFC 2277) in use and to see
what are the industrial, economic, technical, ergonmic, etc. parameters of
their best support for different languages. Which propositions can be made
towards a standardisation and political decisions making this issue to be
