           Summary: javascript: the AltGr key return a 0 value for the
                    keyCode, instead of 225
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 528+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: JavaScriptCore
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: e.blindauer at gmail.com

Currently, there is no way to know if the altGr key is pressed.

Firefox fixed this problem recently in their release 15

This problem affect some javascripts application, like noVNC or guacamole
(https://github.com/kanaka/noVNC/issues/21, http://guac-dev.org/trac/ticket/136 )

The javascript test page is http://guac-dev.org/pub/tests/key-event-test.html

Currently webkit based browsers return a keyCode 0 for the AltGr Key. Firefox, since version 15 return the value 225.

Can a patch be made to return the same value for webkit browsers ?
(The AltGr key isn't the right Alt. It's a key found in most european keyboard layout)

This can be tested on linux mainly. windows users have a similar bug, but I'll open another BR because of the way to emulate AltGr with Alt+ctrl on windows
