17. Microsoft now has a keyboard mapping program
If you're a coder, you may enjoy using it if you have Win2k or XP. It's available for free at http://www.microsoft.com/globaldev/tools/msklc.mspx -- I've used it to make, among other things, a Dvorak keyboard that can handle the special letters for Esperanto and Volapk.

Unfortunately, I have not figured out how to make special code page symbols or Unicode work on the on-line forums like DU -- it may not be possible on most fora. But the whole ASCII set is available, and it's a lot easier to use than most people realize.

My own coding experience is mainly in Visual Basic, but I also programmed medical software in dBaseIII+ back in the late '80s. Which means that I am often underemployed these days and have lots and lots of time for DU :)
