Okay. Gotcha.

Alas, there seems to be no straightforward way of supporting your keyboard 
layout without breaking others (I know of at least US and GB layouts). For 
instance, on your keyboard the key which is documented to produce the 'grave' 
scan code is actually the 'less than/greater than' key. Aaargh!

I think probably the best solution would be to produce a "d_mac" keymap driver 
for AmigaOS - a keymap layout which you can install and use on AmigaOS on UAE 
when running UAE with a German Mac OS keyboard (given the wackiness of Mac 
keyboard layouts other international keymap drivers would probably be a good 
idea too). Anybody know of a good keymap editor for AmigaOS?

Has anybody got any more information to add here? The current OS X raw 
key-mapping seems to fit the documentation - but obviously isn't a good match 
for the keyboards that are actually out there.
