    Um... do you have the keyboard's locale as UK or something like that? Under the US keyboard it is Shift + 3... I don't remember exactly for the UK keyboard...

    EDIT: Nevermind, see this chart:

    Apparently it is the ~ key without pressing Shift.

    In the German kbd, there is a '#' key left to the enter key. Alt+3 produces the '¶' symbol, and shift-3 '§'. Very strage. Btw, where is the '@' there ?, here is Alt+l (lower case L), braces are the most frustrating. I was using previously the swiss-german kbd, and the german one is totally different in that regard:confused:
