I use 2 BBC computers (from 1986) to teach BBC BASIC to children, as 
well as a variety of
BBC computer emulators on Macintosh and Linux computers.

The BBC keyboards are unlike the "bog normal" computer keyboard
"we all know and love".

An onscreen keyboard [i.e. a virtual BBC keyboard] would be of great 
These would be placed on a computer desktop underneatha BBC monitor window.

Now, after donkey's year's of experience with onscreen keyboards with my 
Devawriter Pro
that as such is not problematic.

What IS problematic is how to "feed" a keyDown and/or a keyUp from a 
LiveCode standalone
to another app.

This is, of course, an old chestnut that keeps popping up from time to time.
