"60 % + Numpad" keyboards

My fellow deskthorians, since my successful purchase of an IBM Model F XT and the superior possibility to have the opportunity to manage the keyboard layout I have asked myself what else I like about this keyboard besides the switch mechanism. I came to the conclusion, that the XT is a sort of "60 %...

I thought there is a difference between function layers and ifselects. So in Muirium's example he defines how to enter ifselect_1 whenever he is in layer 0, by pressing Numlock. Afterwards he declares what should happen, when ifselect_1 is active. Once again layer 0 appears, that keeps me wondering....

Thank you very much for your help, Muirium. I am really sorry for my silly questions. I am not quite sure what the part "layer 0" does. In the first part you assign "select_1" to num_lock. Then you define what is being remapped whenever you enter "select_1". But in both cases, what does "layer 0"?

I have decided to work on Windows. Is your quoted part the same syntax for Windows using tinkerboy's converter? If not, what is the correct syntax?
