(UK mapping, not sure about US).

On the US keymap \| are where #~ are on the UK keymap.

My solution to the YZ problem is to use an unlabeled keyboard to avoid the eye being misled about the actual key mapping.

For the same reason I have a blank keyboard, too ;-) - and I use it mostly in the UK layout, which I found most suitable for perl programming.

perl -le'print map{pack c,($-++?1:13)+ord}split//,ESEL'
