Nokia 770 Internet Tablet: Input Methods

The layout of punctuation glyphs on the en_US (US English) keyboard seems to change with every version of Maemo. The one with Maemo-2.0 is very unfriendly to geeks: the punctuation most used when entering shell commands (hyphen, dollar sign, asterisk and double quote) is all shifted, and some important keys (pipe, grave accent and braces) are relegated to the symbol page. Therefore I resolved to create my own custom keyboard. My initial plan (not actually realized) was to call it English (Geek) with a locale symbol of en_GK.
