+// I do NOT like dead-keys - the International keyboard as defined by Microsoft
+// doesn't fit my needs. Why use two keystrokes for all simple characters (eg '
+// and <space> generates a single ') just to have an é (eacute) in two strokes
+// as well? I type ' more often than é (eacute).
+//
+// This file works just like a regular keyboard, BUT has all dead-keys
+// accessible at level3 (through AltGr). An ë (ediaeresis) is now: AltGr+"
+// followed by an e. In other words, this keyboard is not international as long
+// as you leave the right Alt key alone.

+// The original MS International keyboard was intended for Latin1 (iso8859-1).
+// With the introduction of iso8859-15, the (important) ligature oe (and OE)
+// became available. I added them next to ae. Because I write ediaeresis more
+// often than registered, I moved registered to be next to copyright and added
