OK, now I have my G5 up and running with the MS Natural Keyboard Pro,
but I find that some of the Alt Gr buttons don't work properly and the
Keyboard Viewer confirms that there are some mapped to the wrong
places. I am using the Danish version of the MS keyboard and it can be
quite irritating with this problem as the @ sign is an Alt Gr key, but
I get § instead. § comes up in three different keyboard combinations.
How can I map the keys so what I see is what I get under global
