I mentioned this in Padde's topic, but I've discovered that the problem applies when using Shai's layout as well. It's a Mac tech issue, but with luck maybe someone knows something about it.
The Norwegian keyboards have the special letter Ø in the QWERTY ";" / Colemak "O" position. Now, using a Mac .layout file to get Colemak works perfectly for normal typing including web browsers and Java - but in some Flash apps like the Air Typer or 2addicted's Letters game linked to from the Learning page, the O (on the Ø key) doesn't seem to be working. Actually, in the Letters game the O works when entering your nick but not in the game proper. Interestingly, it works perfectly in the sister game Words.
I normally use Windows and there the Ø key has a VKEY mapping as an OEM_#; so it's not marked quite like the normal letter keys to the system but more as a rare punctuation key. Could something similar be the issue here? Could something be done about it? It'd be nice if a remapping doesn't lose system functionality of any kind, including typing in Flash apps.
