    Hi All,

    First post here.
    I've seen that a few people have created Colemak keyboard layouts designed for those of us using ISO keyboards rather than ANSI (see here for a comparison: http://deskthority.net/wiki/ANSI_vs_ISO).
    However, I haven't found one that has the Caps Lock key remapped as a backspace key without the need for registry tweaks (and some were missing mappings).

    Taking this thread as inspiration (https://forum.colemak.com/viewtopic.php?id=1621) I decided to create a keyboard layout in the same way; with Caps Lock remapped and using the Corsican (CO) language identifier for the keyboard.
    Whilst I was at it I also added some additional keybindings via AltGr and Ctrl+Shift which will be useful for me (and possibly others).

    Finally I decided it was worth sharing here so others could benefit.

    Included in the download is an installer, keyboard layout images, keyboard source code and a readme.

    Welcome, Ryan. I don't have an ISO keyboard so I can't check it out, but I will note that your top link is broken. It seems to think that the closed parenthesis is part of the link. Perhaps you should add a space.

    This seems like a good addition, good work.

    If you add a link to a post, the forum code will (usually) automatically add url and /url tags around it. If you edit your post you can move the parenthesis out of the tags and everything should be fine and dandy.
