A few days ago I came across this description of the Cocoa Text  
System. For me it solved a long standing annoyance where the decimal  
separator on the numeric keypad follows the keyboard layout rather  
than the decimal separator in the international preferences pane.  
Quite annoying when entering a number in OmniOutliner and the  
keyboard was set to Dutch. Add
    "#," = ("InsertText:", ".")
to the DefaultKeyBindings.dict file and the problem disappears. This  
may be useful for the German keyboard layout as well. The text also  
contains a sample of how to add Greek letters to Cocoa applications,  
or LaTeX sequences, so typing α (ctrl-g a) or \alpha (ctrl-m a)  
becomes really easy. Hope this may be useful to some,

Mythology, n.:  The body of a primitive people's beliefs concerning  
its origin, early history, heroes, deities and so forth, as  
distinguished from the true accounts which it invents later.
