The keyboard layout is described in terms of a chart rather than a keyboard. This is because many base characters are typed as a sequence of a letter followed by one of =, ~ or ^. Details of the keyboard layout may be found in the document in the section on Keyboard Assignments. (PDF, requires Adobe Reader)
