keyboards vs. i18n vs. programming
Why can't someone come up with a keyboard layout that can handle multiple natural languages and still be suitable for coding?
So far, I like the ISO9995-3 layout, except to type < and > I have to type AltGr-Shift-Z and AltGr-Shift-X. Not exactly conducive to speedy coding. (Or HTML authoring.)
What I would like is a keyboard that is the same as (or very similar to) the US layout, except for the AltGr switch, which would allow me to type extended characters needed for other languages (accents, inverted punctuation, guillemets, etc).
Update: I found it! It's called the "US-International keyboard".
Another idea: is the Dvorak layout compatible with any of these international layouts?
I had to give a presentation to my spanish class today. Now, I don't like public speaking anyway, and when nervousness and lack of preparation are combined, strange things happen. I managed to squeak out a presentation without offending anybody, I think.
