[for anyone looking to find the "backtick" key on a regular US style keyboard]
no reply required - just informational
Some people might also find it easier to highlight the block of text and click the "Preformatted text" button on the toolbar (or press Ctrl+E), which puts the backticks in for you.
This is pretty much a moot point if you're not using a US-ANSI keyboard
On my ISO Italian keyboard the Alt Gr combination depends on the OS.
Ieuw, localised keyboards
Also see American Standard Code for Information Interchange for encoding details.
That sounds unusual. We actually have some letters we need that are difficult to type on a us keyboard: àèéìòù (and their capitalized versions).
Also, I thought most of Europe used ISO keyboards (double height return key, one additional key left of Z) instead of ANSI (single height return key, etc)
Personally, I use a form of dead keys for that. No need to contaminate my keyboard with that.
Also, Dutch doesn't have many use for those pesky diacritics: Dutch is a normal, modern language Sort of
The (antiquated) Dutch layout does have a key left of the Z, but that's highly unusual nowadays. And the return key can be double height, but usually just single height.
And hold the ALT key and type the number...
Now that's kicking it old school!
We could all just type in UTF8 hexcodes, for universal-compatibility purposes, of course.
I do too. I use both ISO italian keyboards and ANSI US keyboards. It starts a bit confusing but one gets used to it.
A keyboard with just "0" and "1" and few other chars like "ENTER"
Binary Keyboard FTW!
