jEdit on Mac OS X

Mac OS X Keyboard

Text Symbols for different keys

(under Construction) Dictionary: Windows Keyboard to Macintosh Keyboard

NOTE: jEdit (JEDIT:) doesn't use the standard (STD:) Windows to Mac keyboard mapping. And read-only applications (e.g., browsers, Adobe Acrobat) are different than file-edit applications (e.g., Text Edit?). And not all applications follow these conventions. Just try the different combinations if these don't work.
