This isn't the right name for this page, but I can't think of a better one right now. I'll move it later. The intent is to list keystrokes that can be used to produce alternate characters, like the inverted question mark or degree sign (in Linux).

When I collect more of these, I should think about formatting them more like a table.

See also xvkbd.

See AboutThesePages.


Using the US - International keyboard

(Not sure if that's what I use -- will test from Linux later.) Use the right-side ALT key for these.

  • (should show degree symbol (a small raised circle)) Alt-Shift 0 making it alt ) (In windows, alt 176 might work in some programs? -- not in IE)
  • (should show inverted q-mark) Alt-Shift - making it alt _ (In windows, alt 191 might work in some programs? -- not in IE)


  • Keyboard -- a nice brief page from Mandrake that gives you some hints re the following:
    • Remapping Keys
    • Mapping New Keys
    • Using The 'Windows' Keys
    • Keyboard Utilities
    • Binding keys
    • Touch-Typing Tutors
    • Control Keyboard LEDs
    • On-screen Keyboards -- mentions xvkbd and gtkeyboard
    • Remote Control -- mentions Xremote for control of a keyboard and mouse from a remote computer (well, actually, IIUC, somebody on a remote computer can use their mouse and keyboard to provide input to the display on the local computer) -- maybe another thing that might help me with my keyboard macro quest.
