2. Oh, hell yeah. K&R
I want it back too. It's a pain to have to copy it from the character map. I still don't know how to do the U+00A2 thing. I know how to do the ones that say use the Alt key, but I when I try to do the U key, it doesn't work right. I just copy and paste it. I'd rather have the key back on the keyboard too.
