I'm not sure it is a bug, it is just the differences between operating
systems. The Rev engine just passes on the key codes that the operating
system sends. If you have the MC IDE, see the "Character Chooser" in the
MetaCard "Tools" menu for examples of these differences. Sometimes you
can use the macToISO and ISOtoMac functions to translate between the
character sets, but I don't think those functions work with non-ascii
