Comment 1 Mike Krüger 2013-03-08 01:10:18 UTC
it's the old 'windows keyboard layout broken' issue - dutch people have reported that for a long time.
Comment 2 Mike Krüger 2013-03-08 01:12:19 UTC
That said - neo keyboard layout is broken as well - I can't type any punctuation in md - not just ".
Comment 3 Michael Natterer 2013-03-08 09:49:03 UTC
Is it broken in stock GTK+ widgets like GtkEntry, or in the source
editor, or in both?
Comment 4 Mike Krüger 2013-03-08 09:58:26 UTC
All GTK+ widgets and other GTK programs like pidgin suffer from the same problem.

I don't know if they have the same problem at least for my keyboard layout it's not easy to fix:

Comment 5 Michael Natterer 2013-03-08 10:07:35 UTC
I have never heard of neo, looking at it right now...
Comment 6 Mike Krüger 2013-03-08 10:08:17 UTC
it's just easy to reproduce with that - as said I don't know if it is the same problem - but the windows keyboard input is messed up :/
Comment 7 Aleksander Morgado 2013-03-22 05:49:11 UTC
Double quotes (Shift+2) with NL keyboard layout work properly when switching to the Simple input method instead of the default Windows IME.
Comment 8 Hugo Logmans 2013-04-02 06:41:33 UTC
Same problem here. I just added a second keyboard in the control panel: the normal United States keyboard (instead of US International which is common for Dutch computers), and then I can enter those quotes. 

The nice part is: Windows remembers which keyboard layout it uses, so I i switch for Xamarin Studio, in this browser window I still can use my lovely dead keys...
