This is a replacement Amiga keymap (keyboard driver) for US-style keyboards.
It is fully identical to the default USA keymap built into the KickStart ROM
except that accents and somer other internation characters are easier to reach.

In addition to all existing key combinations (the ones I added were previously
unused), you now have the following "dead" keys to get an accent over the next
letter you type:

                                                        Applies to letters Dead
key                Meaning                        "AaCcEeIiNnOoUuYy "
>------------------------------------------------------------------------------<
Alt-`                   Accent grave                    Àà  ÈèÌì  ÒòÙù  ` Alt-~
(alt-shift-`)     Tilde                           Ãã      ÑñÕõ    ~ Alt-^
(alt-shift-6)     Accent circonflexe              Ââ  ÊêÎî  ÔôÛû  ^ Alt-'       
           Accent aigu                     Áá  ÉéÍí  ÓóÚúÝý' Alt-" (alt-shift-')
    Umlaut/trema                    Ää  ËëÏï  ÖöÜüÿ " Alt-,                  
Cedille                           Çç

Of course this will only work if that particular combination of accent and
letter is available; otherwise you get the letter without accent.  Note that any
of these accents can also be applied to the space bar.

The old accents under alt-f, alt-g, alt-h, alt-j, and alt-k are still there if
you are used to them, so if you need to type accents regularly there's really no
reason not to use my new keymap.

Also available are the following simple international characters:

Key combination         Symbol
>------------------------------<
Alt-! (alt-shift-1)     ¡
Alt-? (alt-shift-/)     ¿


And just for consistency with those two I threw in some extras as well:

Key combination         Symbol
>------------------------------<
Alt-                   /
Alt-/                   


The keymap was created by editing one of the keyboard drivers on my Workbench
3.0 disks using EditKeys by David Kinder.  So far it has only been used on
A4000s running OS version 3.0 (V39), but to my knowledge it should work on all
Amiga systems.  If there are any requests, I'll be happy to add these shortcuts
to the other keymaps (d/Deutsch, n/Norsk, gb/British etc) as well.

Hope it's of some use to you.  ¡If so, enjoy!
