This product reliably crashes PassportWallet because the system is unable to pull KCHR data out of it. Most programs do not need to do this but if you find something crashing inexplicably....

Well, really cool idea, I used it for a while with no problems except one MAJOR one.
Using the Canadian.keylayout does a very very bad thing for Final Cut Pro/Express.
Most (if not all) keyboard shortcut that involves the Command Button (Apple button) will crash the program.
I've only tested this on one machine, but with more then one user. The result is always the same, use the standard U.S. keyboard layout and all is good. Use this Canadian one and it immediately crashes after any Command button shortcut.
If anyone knows of a fix for this please let me know! I really want to use this!

Great. I love it.
It's not important why I don't want to stare at an American flag all day - what matters is that I don't, and now I have an option! Thank you!

Here is a suggestion for v1.2 :
Make a UN flag option (I would prefer this over seeing a Canadian flag)

Awesome! You made my day. I was sick of looking at that American flag. This little hack is simple and nothing short of amazing. I love it. Canadian, born, bred, and raised.

Even better now that I can use accented characters and ligatures etc while I put on a dignified patriotic display. Merci Beaucoup, mon ami!!

I just knew that this particular piece of software would bring out all the crazies. LOL. I kiss you all!!! Mwah! Mwah!

Still, all this talk made me check out the keyboard layouts in Panther and I was amused to see who gets a flag and who doesn't.

Thank God for the Cherokee Nation and Hawaiian flags. I don't know how I got along without them.

How do the Taiwanese feel when they have to use a Chinese flag? Where's the Puerto Rican flag, dang it?

Is it too much to ask for Ebonics, '1337, and Californian "All-Statements-Spoken-With-A-Rising-Pitch-So-They-Sound-Like-Questions?" flags? Sheesh, Apple. Get with the program.

How about an Apple flag for when I employ the RDF?

And finally, my list (OSX 10.3) already has a Canadian flag in it, which makes me wonder what the difference is.

The one that is included is for the french keyboard layout which is different to the english one... keys in different areas etc... so if you use one that shipped with 10.3 with a standard keyboard that isnt french you will press one key and a differnt letter will appear etc...

Nice, but layout is incomplete, does not include characters when option key is depressed! That includes the "dead key" characters for typing accented characters en français!
