Brazilian??????
There is not such language, like there isn't the American language.
There is Portuguese and English.

But there is such a thing as a Brazillian keyboard layout, which is what the site provides access to. The positions of the dead keys or some punctuation signs may be different. Your comment, while true, is not relevant to this hint.

No there isn't.
The only diference is the + and - in the keypad that are on the place one of the other.

It´s to bad that they don't reproduce the reality.
You can see a picture of one keyboar in Portugues in http://www.terra.com.br/macmania/macmania/beaba/beaba_mac_portugues.htm (fig.4)
And this is a picture not a draw.

"Brazilian" ? you must mean "Portuguese"... there's no language called "Brazilian"... in Brazil they talk Portuguese... Portuguese in Brazil is related to Portuguese in Portugal the same way English in the US is related to English in UK.
