Description Ilguiz Latypov 2005-12-28 14:14:57 UTC
Hello,

I wanted to move the lower case hard sign of the phonetic cyrillic layout away
from the often used underscore character.

I also found that the capital hard sign was missing.

So instead of the upper row of

Ю!@ёЁ%^&*()ъЧ
ю1234567890-ч

I came up with

Ч!@ъЪёЁ&*()_Ю
ч1234567890-ю

My swapping of CHE and YU was an attempt to tie the alphabetically close letters
together (Ю close to Э).

I changed the location of ё and Ё because I assumed that the hard sign was to
occur more frequently than YO.

I will be attaching the diff file shortly.  Regards,

--

Ilguiz, two things:
1. What is the "phonetic" layout in Windows? Is it like yours - or like existing
one?
2. Would it be possible to define "phonetic2" as "phonetic" + "smth" - i.e. use
"include" statement

Unfortunately, Microsoft doesn't seem to provide a phonetic Cyrillic layout,
according to its web site,

  http://www.microsoft.com/globaldev/reference/keyboards.mspx

There isn't a grass-root standard either.  The list of various layouts at
http://klava.ruswin.net/ doesn't refer to any phonetic layout as preferred or
"official".

I figured most of my changes weren't justified enough.  So I am suggesting to
only take the lower case hard sign off the underscore and include the upper case
hard sign.  The existing variant "phonetic" could be changed because the
modification is affecting only one original placement.  A patch is attached.

It would be nice to move che/CHE away from the plus/equals button.  E.g., these
letters could reside on top of 7 and 8.

Comment 5 Sergey V. Udaltsov 2006-01-04 12:09:44 UTC
Well, syntactically this patch is ok. Are you sure people using ru(phonetic)
would be happy to lose the percent sign (I don't care too much about
asciicircum)? Also, actually, http://klava.ruswin.net/ gives keys 6 and 7 for
the hardsign, not 5 and 6 - are your sure your patch is right?
