      Carlos.Lucasius@Canada (March 10, 1999): See also bug 4201056
      (it only mentions problems with '!', not with '=A7' ).

      Original bug report follows:


      This problem appears under Windows98 and WindowsNT 4.0
      There was not such a problem under JDK1.1.x

      //Description: Using the Fr. keyboard driver (MS Win), exclamation '!' (and
      // also section sign '=A7') appear as question mark '?' in AWT comp's. (17=
      722)
      //Steps: 1) Install Fr keybd driver (on WinNT: Settings; Control Panel;
      // <Input Locales>; <Add>; French(Standard); <OK>; "Enable Indicator on
      // Taskbar" =3D=3D true; <OK>)
      // 2) Run this app. (JDK 1.2 -V)
      // 3) Switch to Fr keybd (the 'q' and 'a' have changed positions from En k=
      eybd)
      // 4) type '!' on Fr keybd (this is right-most key of the bottom
      // row -- _next_ to the right shift key)
      // exp: to see '!' displayed
      // act: '?' gets displayed
      // 5) type same key as step 4, plus the Shift key
      // exp: to see '=A7' displayed (Section sign)
      // act: '?' gets displayed

      //package jdkFrKeyBd;
