UltimateKEYS Keyboard Layout (Windows/Linux)

International US QWERTY layout with AltGr (Right Alt) dead keys via AutoHotkey (Win), MSKLC (Win) and XKB/Xmodmap + .XCompose (Linux).

=> CP key (blue) :  Compose Key (Multi_key), in combination with Right Alt or AltGr.
=> Note that the ISO key (next to Left Shift) is not present on standard ANSI keyboards.

UltimateKEYS keeps all base keys the same as US QWERTY. However, holding down Right Alt or Right Alt + Shift makes other diacritics and symbols accessible.
Via the 'Compose Key' (CP), even more diacritics and symbols can be accessed.

It also shares some similarities with "US-International". However, this project attempts to solve the most common difficulties from this counterpart.
One of those :  the quotes issue, with ' and " now accessible as usual (or expected).
Further on, UltimateKEYS attempts to harmonize languages with Latin-based alphabets on US QWERTY, and has borrowed some aspects from EurKEY (also GPL v3).

Note that in the new version, the acute and grave accents have switched places.
The former placements can be found at :  UltimateKEYS - Legacy Website


Important - Security Warning

=> Win/Linux :  Only use "BASIC LATIN" characters (codes 32 to 126) for your Windows, Microsoft Live and Linux passwords !
Otherwise, it might be impossible to type any Unicode character higher than "Basic Latin" at the login screen/prompt (due to a different keyboard configuration) !  =>  ACCOUNT LOCKOUT
=> Win/Linux :  ALWAYS make your system passwords VISIBLE during modification !
