Bug#256442: [ATTACHED] iBook G4 British keymap

Package: xlibs
Version: 4.3.0.dfsg.1-5

it would appear Apple are using new designs for the british keyboards on iBooks
and Powerbooks.

i save the attached file as /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xkb/symbols/macintosh/gb_new

an annoying thing about this new Apple keyboard is that the # key is not marked
physically on any of the keys. it is bound in MacOS to AltGr+3 (even though
AltGr is marked as "alt" physically on the keyboard)

i have had this setup working in all X applications for extended Latin-9
characters (such as §±¤)

in MacOS, every key seems to have an AltGr binding... i did not have time to
create the full table for all the keys. this is just created from the keys which
are physically marked on the keyboard, plus ¢ and #.

i have sent an accompanying file to the console-data package for console
