Kmhmu 2008 Keyboard Help
Keyboard Layout Notes
Keyboard layout (as shown below) follows the Lao standard, with the following minor differences to simplify entry of Kmhmu text:
|i||ຣ||This follows the pre-2005 Lao typewriter convention,
since ຣ is widely used in Kmhmu while ຮ is rarely if ever used.
|thin space||To allow narrow spacing between words, the space bar inserts a (wrapping) thin-space when pressed once, or normal spaces if pressed more than once.|
(twice or more)
|●|||||ZWSP||Zero-width (wrapping) space character|
|●||%||໌||This mark used to form modified characters found in Kmhmu (but not in Lao) replaces the "Cancellation mark" (thanthakhat) found in normal Lao fonts, so can be entered using the same keystroke. But in most cases, the Y and U keys would be used instead.|
