My struggle with custom keyboard layouts dates back to the old CP/M days, whose support for localised keyboards was not even planned. When Windows first added support for local languages (was it Windows 95?) I thought the fight was over, but unfortunately it wasn’t so, and soon I had to edit the binary layout file to make it fit my needs.
Now, many years later, I faced once again the need to customise the Windows keyboard to match my new localised keyboard, and, to my surprise, Microsoft support made things a lot easier.
