    Yeah, this is the list of Alternate characters for 's'.

    That's the list of Alternate characters for '-'.

    It's a little hard to remember all of this, but I'll get used to it I suppose as I use them.
    IMO, they've done a decent job of grouping the Alternate characters with what you would logically associate them with.

    There are some keys that generate three pop-up lists, e.g. N+Alt, Opt+N+Alt, Shift+N+Alt.

    KeyBoard Help is under the Edit menu of most apps, when you are in a typing situation. . . . it has a list . . . .
