Tilde and CSWB

I have a PC keyboard connected to my Alphaserver (I know, I know). In the New Desktop, under Options/Keyboard I set

Angle Brackets Key Sends `~
Comma Key Sends ,<

and my DECterm shows what I type for these symbols.

In CSWB, sometimes I can get the ` and ~ to appear when I type them, other times I get
< or >.

How to I get CSWB (latest vesion) to display ` and (especially) ~? TIA

The key bindings for the six keys in the middle of the keyboard (which include PAGE UP or REMOVE) assume that you have an LK style keyboard. If you have a PC style keyboard, you should define the logical GTK_KEY_MAPPING_MODE to 2 before running Mozilla. For example:

Valid values for GTK_KEY_MAPPING_MODE are:
0 - no mapping
1 - LK keyboard (default)
2 - PC keyboard

Re: Tilde and CSWB

I have GTK_KEY_MAPPING_MODE 2 already set.

What's odd is that the Keyboard setting in my DECterm window has "Tilde Key Sends ~", which works correctly. But I just happened to notice that my Escape key works like the ~ key (ie, unshifted Esc sends ` and shifted Esc sends ~)!

Any more suggestions?
