Apple Keyboard Key Symbols ⌘ ⌥

One interesting thing about Apple keyboard is that, for their international versions, the key label use symbols instead of English words, for keys such as {Return, Tab, Shift, PageUp, PageDown, Home, End, …}. For US and English-speaking countries, it uses English words only. [see Keyboard Enter/Return Key Symbol]
