I think you are still missing the point - anyhow the point that I was making.
(Which was intended as a passing acknowledgement of what Rosie had said. But
has grown. :-( ) My keyboard, being "GB" doesn't have the keys for French
accented letters. The French one does. The accents are accessible, but are
not on the keyboard. The letters *on* this keyboard are all for the English
language, and those for the other languages used in these islands are not,
except in so far as they coincide - anyhow in form - with the English ones.
It is therefore a misnomer to call it a "GB" or"UK" keyboard. I am objecting
semantically. It is not a GB keyboard, it is an English one. (GB English,
if you will - but still English.)
