This has to do with the fact that the fingerspelling fonts will run under
ordinary software, not just SignWriter. That means that the symbols are
actual characters, and possibly should be on different keys than they are
in SignWriter. For instance, the Question Mark in the US keyboard in
SignWriter is found on the unshifted /-key, but on "real" keyboards it is
found on the shifted /-key.
