Curly braces on a Mac: The short Mac keyboard reference running Mac

I recently did a short table on the bizarre keyboard mapping on a Macbook Pro, when running Windows on such creature. Well – it turns out that also running native Mac OSX will require some explanation.
Note: I’ve got a DK keyboard.
/ shift + 7
\ shift + alt + 7
[ alt + 8
] alt + 9
@ alt + *
{ shift + alt + 8
} shift + alt + 9
| alt + i
~ alt (right) + ¨

On my Macbook pro Norwegian keyboard it is:

{ = right-alt + 7

[ = right-alt + 8

] = right-alt + 9

} = right-alt + 0


Annoying, but what is driving me crazy is the placement of the ´fn´ key in the Crtl´s place... That changes Undo, Redo, Copy, Paste, Cut, etc, etc.

This is ridiculous! Why can't Apple mark these characters on the keyboard like others do?

Why they cannot? Well - because they are Apple ;-)
