I believe that layout’s called ISO-US / what’s a ISO?

Re: Post your keyboard/keycaps!

You made a typing error there: It must read "One look at the so-called 'Enhanced' layout is proof enough." No, I didn't.

That's true, but the size of the umlauts wouldn't have bothered me, because they are too small on the IBM Model F XT as well. And if IBM does it, it's ok. :D
In spite of IBM being IBM, the company DID make some mistakes here and there. One look at the XT layout is proof enough. :D :D :D

That depends on which English UK layout you cater to. The keys are are different on US-ISO, and on UK-ISO layouts on PC and Macintosh. I am quite aware of that .

Re: [IC] DSA Red Planet

The base kit is missing an alpha key: you have a short left Shift (for ISO keyboards), but not the 1U alpha key that should go between it and Z.

Also, the R3 key to accompany the vertical Enter should be \|, not #~.

Also also, you have the 1.5U R2 \| key twice (and with the same color).
