A small OS like Oberon should not have to bother with all codepages, all 
keyboard layouts, all fonts, all charactersets, hiragana, katakana, 
left/right alignment of tokens (like arabic) or even up/down alignment.

Just settle with US keyboard, US characterset. Who needs umlauts when 
middle clicking a command?
