I thought all keyboards were alike other than maybe special Chinese and Japanese ones. I was guessing that, other than adding a few extra letters (such as Sweden’s Å, Ä, and Ö), the keyboards would be identical… WRONG.
I find it extremely annoying typing since when I reach for a ", I get an Ä, when I want a closed curly bracket, I get ^. Swedish keyboards are not a programmer’s best friend. It is quite frustrating, but that is another subject, and quite off topic.
No doubt, since the key locations vary so drastically in some areas,
How are “keyCode” and “charCode” values different if captured from other keyboards?
How smart is Flash, and how much does the developer need to compensate for this?
[*]Is there any way to detect what type of keyboard the user is currently using?
