@Simeon - by accident I noticed that some of the keys when held down for an extended time fire up a few alternative characters which you can paste into your code. For instance press and hold s and a window with three alternative options shows up - š - ß and ś.

What I’d like to know is:

  1. Are these valid characters for use in Codea?
  2. Do any of them have specific functions/values in Codea?
  3. Are these characters copiable/transferable in the filing system so we can save, post code etc in files without problems,?

Finally - did you know if you press and hold on the space key the whole keyboard(characters) are greyed out?
