    My aunt spilled wine on her ibook G4 and the period key won't work and hasn't for ages Is there a way to assign a different key as the period? This copy and paste crap is really getting annoying She's running OS 10 3 9

    No, I don't think so. You can assign shortcuts, but switching characters is something I've never seen a procedure for.

    Well, ok, if you say so. That looks like lots of work for a small change. I thought the OP just wanted to remap one key. I don't think there is something built into OSX that permits it. Seems like a keyboard repair or replacement is a better option anyway.
