Well, it's been a great many years since I used a Mac for any extended 
period of time.  I just happen to remember starting to type and having 
gibberish show up because my fingers were off-by-one having homed on the 
D & K index bumps.  They may have wised up and used the standard which 
had far more keyboards in use than Apple keyboards.
