      On my Spanish keyboard, to the right of the L is the Ñ (N tilde, ; and
      : in an US Keyboard), and to the right of Ñ, the " and ' (two points
      accent and acute accent, double and single quotes in US, I think).
      This is the key which outputs Q in ME. On top of this, to the right of
      the P, the ^ and ` key (cincunflex and grave accent, used in Frech; {
      and [ in US) outputs a P.

      I can tell I'm in Spanish because, for example,
