Not as far as I can see.

I can write this sort of script:

on mouseUp
   select after fld "TEXTBOCKS"
   type "p"
end mouseUp

and it will always type 'p'.

What I am trying to do is send a keyUp to a key that is named by its 
rawKey code,
in this way the end-user will know the relevant key they have to press 
regardless of what symbols are written on their physical keyboard.

All that 'type' does is put text into a field in a slow way; great fun, 
but strictly for laughs on a Saturday night.

Richmond.
