Many micro's of that time had the " as shift-2, but I wish I had a
Sorcerer to confirm it followed the style of the Commodore etc. My
problem was that I could not find a key to give the = sign - it should
be two over to the right of the "0" I think, but that key is dead. Other
keys follow the Atari/CBM etc layout and CTRL-H works for backspace.

However simple BASIC statements (that did not use "=") ran fine. Not a
bad achievement for a Java program that loads in less than a minute.
