summary: Keyboard mode to support Microsoft standard serial consoles
class: wish: This is a request for an enhancement.
difficulty: fun: Just needs tuits, and not many of them.
priority: low: We aren't sure whether to fix this or not.

Microsoft have published a standard describing how PCs should talk to serial consoles. To avoid compatibility, this uses a completely different keyboard mapping from the rest of the world, outlined below:

Home Keyh
End Keyk
Insert Key+
Delete Key-

Page Down Key/
Function 1 Key1
Function 2 Key2
Function 3 Key3
Function 4 Key4
Function 5 Key5
Function 6 Key6
Function 7 Key7
Function 8 Key8
Function 9 Key9
Function 10 Key0
Function 11 Key!
Function 12 Key@
Shift Modifier^S
Alt Modifier^A
Control Modifier^C
Reserved#
ReservedA
ReservedB

The modifiers are represented as the codes listed above, prefixed to the normal sequences. If the modifier is pressed alone, its sequence is transmitted twice in succession. If multiple modifiers apply, they're transmitted in the order shift, control, alt.
