Hi Dar,

I visited the URL and a few links (unfortunately the one that sounded 
most promising, "Guide to the Use of Character sets in Europe", 
returned "Page not found."); but my ignorance is not alleviated.

There is an alphabet for every language.  There must be a way to 
filter keyboard input to reject keys that are not part of the 
alphabet, or a subset thereof.

This is not an issue of key translation between two computers; rather 
the focus is on filtering keyboard input on the user's computer to 
reject keystrokes that are defined as illegal for the current input 
field.
