    Is there a menu or area within leopard that illustrates what a respective key's symbol is e.g. shift, option, control.

    I know there are many sites that show you the symbol for each key (including this one), but I was wondering if os x itself had a breakdown of keys' symbols. I thought I came across it before in system preferences, but I can't seem to find it (possibly because it doesnt' exist).

    Thanks.

    System Preferences --> Keyboard & Mouse --> Keyboard --> Modifier Keys

    That shows the symbols and allows you to reassign them if you wish.
