Touching the shift key changes this position on the Keyboard Viewer to £ and touching the Alt key changes it to #.

I want to be able to type printable characters in MacVim just as I do in a terminal, if necessary by creating some maps.

      If you want to get the same keys as are shown in the keyboard viewer
      then you need to disable the 'macmeta' option.
