Key Reference


Note

If you plan to follow advice from this site, please review these keyboard key-to-unicode character mappings. Most if not all follow standard conventions and should be self-explanatory in most cases. The possibility of changing them is not nonexistent nevertheless, and they might be given a different meaning if it’s a for better stylistic match for something or something makes better semantic sense.

We’ll promise to try to keep things clear, though this site has ‘sensei’ in the address, that’s already not serious. In any case please don’t assume the notion you have of them is the meaning intended, because though it may be correct, it could still be wrong.

List will be updated if/when necessary.
