Description Christian Rose 2002-10-21 16:58:02 EDT
In Windows, it's possible to use Ctrl+Alt as an alternative for Alt+Gr when 
composing keys. For example, on the Swedish layout, I can press Ctrl+Alt+2 to 
get an @ instead of having to press AltGr+2. This is an advantage both for 
normally-abled users who can then type this character with one hand, and for 
disabled users who aren't able to use more than one hand efficiently.
Comment 1 Eido Inoue 2004-08-23 16:52:13 EDT
whether or not ctrl-alt is a synonym (sometimes just the right alt
key) is a decision for each keymap, and the upstream, to make.
