    My job demands that I have to type in tons of text.
    Not all of this text is English. Actually, it's mainly Greek, Russian, Turkish, etc. KeyCaps was an EXCELLENT utility that allowed me to find "hidden"
    characters (ie: é, à, û, ®, ™, ©, etc.). I've abviously memorized these,
    but I've got some greek that needs retyping, and Panther's Font Book is
    of no use to me. (unless I'm missing something). What the $@#* happenend my %$#^& KeyCaps? and if it's gone, any recommendations?

    Key Caps is still here, Apple just decided to hide it from you. (Don't ask me why...)

    It can be found at:
    Macintosh HD
    System
    Library
    Components
    KeyboardViewer.component
    Contents
    SharedSupport
    KeyboardViewerServer.app

    That's where it is on my iBook. I have Mac OS 10.3

    you can also turn on the thing is system prefs, which allows you to see the flag of country of the keyboard layout you have, in the tool bar, when it is there go into its menu, and at the buttom is keykaps

    Answer...

    Sys prefs, international menu, input menu, check "keyboard viewer". Then, at bottom left, check show input menu in menu bar.

    I never quite understood the point of keycaps. Seems like such a useless program.

    Its actually quite useful if you ever need to find the copyright symbol, or you have to type in Spanish on an English KB.
