I've also got UK PC keyboard layouts on there.  I don't
remember the British VT-100 layout, I should look that up.
The diagrams were referenced merely to show that (at least
on the PC), Ctrl was moved.  I'm pretty sure that I used
other (non-PC) keyboards that also had Ctrl on the home row,
which I prefer.

Good point.  I suspect that international variants of the
keyboards used on DEC terminals, and keyboards used on PCs
feature keys for both Delete and Backspace. I could be wrong
