I made Caps Lock the compose key, that makes Caps Lock losing its
”annoyingness” (hitting it by miSTAKE, YOU KNOW…).

I created my own keyboard layout containing the characters I think I
need and where I need them (like arrows on the arrow keys if combined
with AltGr: ←↑↓→⬄↹↔⇨), and even characters on the Enter key (↵¶),
home, end and others. If not combined with AltGr, they act normally,
like Enter, home, end and so on. ☺
And I only have numbers at one place: The ”num pad”. Therefore I moved
down most of the characters above the numbers at the first row,
!"#@%&/()=, so I no longer need Shift to type them. I also added small
numbers on the num pad: ₀₁₂₃₄₅₆₇₈₉⁰¹²³⁴⁵⁶⁷⁸⁹ and so on. Find it very
useful and it wasn't too hard to do.

Well, back to the subject, I guess…
