The alt-intl keymap (altgr-intl on Windows, "International Alternative
(AltGr-Deadkeys)" on Linux) combines the standard US keymap with easy
access to most international characters, either through combining Alt
key with an alphanumeric key, or a number of Alt-Deadkeys allowing
intuitive combination of diacritics with letters.

I very much prefer this keymap on any machine I work on, and I thought
I would share my Amiga alt-intl keymap (created with EditKeys v1.63 by
David Kinder).

A number of characters usually available in this mapping cannot be
displayed by classic AmigaOS. With no good idea what else to do I
mapped these keys to space.

German users: Alt-q is ä, Alt-y is ü, Alt-p is ö, and Alt-s is ß. You
get used to it really quick, and from there on it is actually very
comfortable.

Drop alt-intl into DEVS:Keymaps, and you can select the new mapping
in Prefs:Input.

CHANGES:
--------

1.1 -- The first release had a number of issues, most of all failing
       to load when using Prefs:Input. It also turns out that I have
       not yet fully understood how deadkeys work, and have thus
       removed them from the mapping for now.

1.0 -- Initial Release
