Use unlabeled features on the small Apple keyboard

I've discovered that with Apple's small Bluetooth keyboard the fn key can give added functionality -- even though these functions are not shown on the keyboard. For example, fn-Left Arrow is Home, fn-Right Arrow is End, fn-Up Arrow is Page Up, fn-Down Arrow is Page Down, and fn-Delete is Forward Delete.

[robg adds: On the queue site, a commenter points out that the small Bluetooth keyboard is essentially a laptop keyboard, and that all the keys shown on the laptop seem to work on the small keyboard, even if not mapped.]
