On the US keymap, the upper left hand key (labled with ~ and ` on a US qwerty
keyboard) will type `~ (unshifted then shifted).  How should that key behave on
the Icelandic map?  Or, is there a better test I could be using to see if the US
or Icelandic map is loaded?

Comment 2 Richard Allen 2006-03-02 16:27:36 UTC
The best test I can think of is that Shift-7 should give the / character.
The key on the right of the "." key (where the / is on US keyboards is I think)
should give the "þ" character.

Also, you can look at: 

Comment 4 David Cantrell 2006-03-02 19:12:25 UTC
This was fixed posted FC5 Test 3.  I've verified that the Icelandic map is
loaded during the first stage of the installation process (e.g., when you select
NFS for the installation source).

One thing that I have noticed is that the screen widgets are not correct for
certain screens under Icelandic.  I've logged this as something to fix for FC6.

Thanks again.
