Switched B00 and E00 on Swedish Mac keyboard

Reported by: bathingrad@… Owned by: pedberg
Component: keyboards Data Locale: sv
Phase: dvet Review:
Weeks: Data Xpath:


I've been looking through the keyboard files from the CLDR project and noticed that the Swedish OS X keyboard layouts doesn't match with the keyboard layout on my Macbook Pro keyboard.

Keyboard layouts:

Swedish - Pro

According to these XML files, the key E00 would print the '<' less than sign and B00 would print '§'. On the keyboard that I own and according to the Apple Store image the characters are switched, e.g. E00 will print '§' and B00 will print '<' (note: I own a Macbook Pro and the keyboard in the link is a standalone Magic Keyboard).

This is most probably related to ticket:8389, which hasn't been resolved yet.

The Windows layouts are correct.

I cannot say whether the Sami version (osx/sv-t-k0-osx-extended-var) is correct, since I don't speak Sami and I couldn't find any info that I could make sense of online.

How shall I proceed?
I read on the development pages that changes to files in all folders except 'und' "need to be requested of the platform vendors".
It also states that "Keyboard data that is not supported on a given platform, but intended for use with that platform, may be added to the directory /und/".
So, should the two 'osx' files be edited or should two files be created in the 'und' directory?
