This is because the characters are not switched in software, but in hardware. The char ROM is directly connected to the ASC/CC key. Real US machines don't have this connection, they have a different character ROM that has a slightly different character set for C128 mode than for C64 mode. The char ROM is therefore connected to the 64mode line instead of the ASC/CC key. Nicolas Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
