    Erm... am I supposed to hit myself in the head really hard before I hold down both shift keys? Does the phrase "coup contrecoup" mean anything to you? :eek: ;) :D

    What the hell are you talking about? Are you trying to see just how many dumb people you can get to type it?

    Well, you got me.

    So is this just an issue with external or with non-Apple kb's? My post above was an iBook G4 internal KB. I don't have my BT kb here to try it.

    Doesn't seem to be any problem there. Why do others have different letters?

    Where's Doctor Q? I think this problem calls for a multi-dimensional survey in order to help evaluate the causal factor in this shifty mystery.
