Comment (by jscipione):

 While I may be the Mac keyboard expert, I know nothing about Czech except
 for what I can look up online. A cursory look at the map most of it looks
 okay to me.

 There are a couple of problems with the attached keyboard layout file
 though other than it should end in .keymap instead of .txt.

 There is a number of spaces in the option map in keys other than 0x5e (the
 space key). This is true for many international maps though, is there a
 good reason for this?

 Also, RCommand is not mapped. Looking at
 http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2841 the Czech standard keyboard has both
 left and right Command keys so it should be mapped AFAIK. The standard
 code to map RCommand to is 0x67.

 Circumflex does not have a character defined in the first slot, but it
 does map dead key tables. Either put a '^' there or don't include any dead
 key maps if circumflex is not used on a Czech keyboard.

 I see that the 'S' key gets a character printed on the Apple Aluminum
 keyboard for the option map, but it looks like you also defined some
 characters for the 'A', 'D', 'H', 'J', 'L', and 'N' keys. Not knowing
 Czech I can't say if that is normal or not.

 I'll have to investigate a bit more to see if the non-ASCII characters are
 all correct.
