Whilst on the subject, is it possible to buy a new 'normal' keyboard
these days without the Windows keys? Heck, I don't even have Windows on
the main desktop machine any more, and on the occasions when I do have
to use a PC with Windows installed I'm forever catching the left-hand
Windows key when going for Alt... grr!

(As an aside, someone showed me a prototype Acorn machine a few weeks
back which had an 'http://' key on it - I gather it was patented too)

Depending on what the original poster wants to do, there are gadgets
such as this:

... if you're homebrewing something that just needs a minimum of input
(hence the small keyboard) then maybe that's an option.

Of course what would be really nice would be a remote control that sends
documented codes related to key position, and at order time you say what
you want printed on each keytop. I'm not aware of anywhere offering that

(My car-based mp3 jukebox project has been stalled for years until I can
figure out a way of navigating thousands of audio files on the move
without killing myself :-)
