italian keyboard

with 2 comments

Italian keyboards are terrible for programmers, but I found a reference about where all the special keys are:

Square brackets ([]), at-sign (@), number-sign (#) are given with AltGr.

Curly brackets ({}) are given with both AltGr and Shift pressed (same keys as square brackets). Often they’re not shown on their keys. Most users don’t know how to get them.

Tilde (~) is not available. You have to go through <Press-Alt> + Num1 + Num2 + Num6 + <Release-Alt>. On laptops you need to switch to NumLock, first.

Backtick (`) is not available. You have to go through <Press-Alt> + Num9 + Num6 + <Release-Alt>. On laptops you need to switch to NumLock, first.

  2. Thank you so much. I’ve been trying to { & } for so long, I was having to copy and paste them into my CSS code (not sure if other brackets can be used). Brilliant :), Thanks again!
