In the English layout there seems to be an other blank key next to the left shift-key...
That is used as "< >" in the German layout.

I wonder why they did not use these dead keys for e.g. curly brackets in the english layout.


(the Amiga 1000 has a different shape for the return-key and a wider left shift-key, making these dead key obsolete.)
