Oooh a quiz!! No idea..But from a usability point of view, is it just a coincedence that these chosen REBOL keys are all together for easy use of the right hand? Only need a few keys to do most things on a REBOL keyboard ; ' [] shifted provides us with :"{} all datatypes! are grouped along the top of the keyboard with the maths operators too. (But this doesn't hold true for all non US keyboard layouts though does it?) Cheers, Allen K I'm left handed and this layout seems natural to me, is it the same for right handers?.
