Keyboard Viewer and Character Palette via AppleScript
Authored by: chrononaut on Jun 21, '08 04:02:36PM
This works best for me as I can pull it up in Spotlight after it sees the alias. Also, I changed the info.plist file in a similar way to this hint.

i=/System/Library/Components/KeyboardViewer.component/Contents/\
SharedSupport/KeyboardViewerServer.app/Contents/Info.plist
sudo defaults write "${i%.plist}" LSBackgroundOnly 0
sudo defaults write "${i%.plist}" LSUIElement 0
And if you prefer the window-style different I edited the KeyboardViewerServer.app/Contents/Resources/English.lproj/MainMenu.nib file with Interface Builder. I selected 'Keyboard Viewer' from the main window and deselected 'Utility' and 'Non Activating' from the Inspector window.
