Keyboard icon help
Authored by: HandyMac on Nov 20, '01 11:46:58AM

A useful ResExcellence page on keyboard icons:
http://www.resexcellence.com//11-16-99.shtml

Some notes from a friend on how the icons are coded (and how to
change them in ASCII rather than using a graphic editor):

Here is the list of flag icon colour codes for the 'kcs4' resource:

0 White
1 Yellow
2 Orange
3 Red
4 Magenta
5 Purple
6 Blue
7 Cyan
8 Green
9 Dark Green
A Dark Brown
B Brown
C Light Grey
D Mid Grey
E Dark Grey
F Black

When you open the resource, you'll see something like:

0000000000000000
0000000000000000
0000000000000000

This is for the US flag. Ignore the first five lines of 0s, the rest is the
flag. You can replace any pair of hexadecimal numbers (= one ASCII character)
with any other pair, e.g. replacing 33 with 31 changes 2 red pixels to a red
and a yellow. For example, for my 'US - No CapsLock' keyboard, I added a green
block in the lower left corner:

6666666633333333
6060606600000000

Here's a Confederate flag:
