    Interesting, but inappropriate design.
    While the keystrokes needed for each item are descernible, they would have been vastly improved if the principle of maximum contrast had been applied. White lettering on a Yellow/Ochre background is not good practise.
    As for the cerise/plum blob for use "if all else fails", the contrast is so poor, even when I enlarged the screen, that I had great difficulty in determining which combinations were required.
    More importantly, what program or procedure do you invke to effect the punctuation mark ? A cmd Dos box ?

    Too many posters don't use the punctuation marks we already have, and you actually expect them to use some that aren't even on the keyboard? .~ ( I was actually able to find this one. See it's already useful. (But I couldn't find the sarcmark I needed here)

      Some use them incorrectly such as a comma before 'and' and a question mark, followed by a full stop, then an en dash and finally an open bracket (but no closing bracket).

      Let he who is without sin etc.
