   Personally, I'd be very surprised if it *were* the same on ALL keyboards 
and ALL platforms. I'd recommend that you decide which platforms you want to 
support, create however-many custom property sets you need to contain all the 
rawKey codes for the platforms you support, and select the appropriate custom 
property set in your stack's "on startUp" handler.
   Hope this helps...
