    Question continental keyboard

    Hi,
    What could it be?
    It took me a while to get used to working on a continental keyboard.Usually continental means sth from Europe that is different from British.
    Thank you.

    A continental keyboard has extra keys for the letters which require accent marks in languages other than English.

    I think we should say American English rather than British (English). BTW Britain is offered referred to Great Britain or United Kingdom (UK). Very sady they are neither great nor does Britain exist and similarly in the case of UK, they are not united nor is there a kingdom.

    Tnx, Davy,
    I got it. Sure, four kinds of E in French, two Ns in Spanish etc.
    Vkumar,
    Sorry, I don't understand in what way your message is relevant to the point.
    Regards

    I will be kind to a new user (I was one recently) and say that this is not an answer to the question asked. It also contains a number of errors of fact, but this is not a forum for political discussions.
