Reflecting on the Mac OS X keyboard experience, and observing recent and forthcoming fixes for issues in OpenOffice.org. A response to OS X vs Ubuntu: Ubuntu wins! (I tried valiantly, repeatedly, to use WordPress for my response there, but the results were a mess.) http://www.diigo.com/annotated/90babb46cfd3b6af110f90daf3504b78 for a highlighted view of Apple Human Interface Guidelines: The Keyboard ; Apple documentation for developers does include statements concerning modifier and other keys.

Forward to Navigation Introduction As an Anglo-Saxonist and philologist, I make daily use of a number of characters that are not found on the standard US computer keyboard. These include characters and accented letters from various European languages (e.g. ß, é, ä, ø), IPA symbols (e.g. ŋ, ә, etc.), Middle English ȝ, and various letters and forms used in Old English (æ, þ, ċ, ġ, ƿ, ū, ȳ, etc.). It is possible to gain access to these letters from the character map utility (versions of this are found in all operating systems) or from the “Insert Special Characters” function in my word processor.
To use a keyboard shortcut, or key combination, you press a modifier key with a character key. For example, pressing the Command key (the key that has a symbol) and the "c" key at the same time copies whatever is currently selected (text, graphics, and so forth) into the Clipboard.
