My Widdle Bwain

More Norsk

This link gives several ways of typing the additional Norwegian characters. Probably the easiest method is to add the keyboard driver (as described.) Once that is done, you can set up a hot-key combination to switch languages. Once in Norsk input mode, the ; key types ø, the ' key types æ, and the [ key types å. All the other characters are as normal.

Meanwhile, there is a new entry on Petter's site. Feh. On the bright side, I actually recognized three words from it! On the down side, they weren't even all in the same sentence. Oh well. One of the previous entries also was taken down.

This quote amuses me:

Essential background material for students of Norwegian. From the source: "it is hard for foreigners to comprehend why Norwegians, who 150 years ago did not have a written language of their own and managed quite well with Danish, have, over the past 100 years, developed for good measure two Norwegian tongues. The purpose of this article is to attempt to explain this paradoxical situation." The article can be found here.
