As french, we do have the AZERTY keyboard with a lof of
hardibility (the inverse of facility :/) for coding.
For example, writing the C multi line comment, like this :
Implies using Shift + :, and then *.
Usually, most of french people don't use than, and
prefer using the num pad, which is better as it already
contains the '/' and '*' without using a a modifier.
But that's fails from times to times in jEdit.
I can't say why, and when, but the fact is that the num
pad is completly disabled as if wasn't existing at all.
When I use a normal keystroke, the num pad rework.
Version of JRE is 1.5_07, but it failed also with
1.5_06. Version of jEdit is 4.3pre4 but it failed also
(I don't remember for 4.2)
