And then there's my Type 6 keyboards, which have neither of the above
layouts.  They have single-width \| and single-width `~, above 1.5-width
backspace, above double-width Enter.  This is part # 3201272-01.  What
are the part numbers on the types you have?

I'd personally prefer a more PC-like layout, but these are what I've
got.  (And I will go on record as stating that the gigantic L-shaped
Enter keys are an offense against good taste and a crime against nature,
and whoever came up with them should be forced to spend the rest of his
or her life using one of those stupid "Genius" mice -- you know, the
ones about the size of a TV remote, with about 30 buttons on them.)
