Summary0014090: Suggestion: HTML5: Add capability to include a character map with the game for use when non-UK keys are required
DescriptionAs we are unable to retrieve a character set from the browser during a HTML5 game, we ship a default keyboard layout for a UK keyboard. It would be very useful for users who need an extended character set not covered on a standard UK keyboard to be able to provide the character set they require as part of the game. This alternative character set would then supersede the one we ship.

There should be the option to include multiple sets and ideally we should switch between them based on locale at runtime - or expose the functionality for users to control this.
Additional InformationThere are a few reports for this issue in Mantis already. See http://bugs.yoyogames.com/view.php?id=13999 for one example of characters which are not possible using the current keyboard layout.

Just hit a snag in an assignment where they need to type the character ã for a typing game and that's plain impossible.
