Teletypes? No, the control key was in its ``correct'' place on the
original IBM-PC keyboard (and on that great Northstar keyboard). In
addition, the function keys (10 of them) were in two vertical columns on
the far left side of the keyboard. It made the Shift- Ctrl- and Alt-
function key combinations that were extensively used in WordPerfect 4
possible with one hand. Aahhh. Takes me back about 20 years.
