Description Allen Cuda 2007-04-24 16:42:45 UTC
The inet file contains some keyboards that have xf86reload and some have xf86refresh asigned to the keyboard reload/refresh key - I honestly don't know the difference between reload and refresh. Shouldn't all the keyboard definitions be standardized to either xf86reload or xf86refresh?

For example I have a Dell USB Multimedia kbd which has xf86reload assigned to the "reload/refresh" key. I use KDE which by default assigns xf86refresh to the default "reload" shortcut - go figure.

There is no real convention on using refresh vs reload. Most of the keyboards use reload (19 vs 8). It seems like a reasonable idea to change all cases of refresh to reload.
