The Dashboard Widget ‘Tastiera’ <http://coq.no/widget/tastiera/en> is an
example of such a use case. If the standardisation effort ends up with only
layout-dependent identifiers, adding a physical identifier (ADB codes or a more
logical key numbering) as well might be a good idea.

An additional problem for non-US keyboard layouts is that dead keys cannot be
detected: no onkeypress event is generated, and onkeyup/down both give
keyIdentifier = Unidentified, which = 0, keyCode = 0. This was reported to
Apple as bug No. 6600446.

Has there been any progress on this topic lately?  Should I open a new bug for
the problem with dead keys?
