The layout proposal I received initially had the back-arrow on the
erase key. I finally managed to get the NiDA standard PDF document
from http://www.khmeros.info/drupal/?q=en/node/399 and I've uploaded
the new draft based on that at
It's quite different from what we have been doing so far, but it looks
like the NiDA standard is quite widespread (I hear that they are even
printed on school textbooks), so I think it is best to go with that.
I don't think we will be able to print additional Khmer text on the
Ctrl/Shift/Alt/Alt-Gr keys (except for maybe the Enter key).
