Suzanne was asking about the left-to-right marker, and if there was an easy way to type it.

Same for the right-to-left-marker.

I no longer even try to use the OSK (on-screen keyboard) to try to see what a keyboard supports. It is much easier to use MSKLC.

Looking at the Hebrew keyboard, it turns out that the CTRL shift state is quite interesting:

And, not to be outdone, the CTRL+SHIFT shift state is also interesting:

I would highly recommend using MSKLC for future keyboard spluenking (unless you are working with something really silly like that Canadian Multilingual Standard keyboard!). It has much more sophisticated code for loading up what a keyboard has to offer....
