I followed your hint and copied over the "[TAB] Q W E R T Y ... " as
first row (changing the y coordinate to zero) and it works fine, in
'normal' and 'caps' mode, as you may see here:


Then I changed the chars to the Spanish tilde chars, for example:

key  45  0  30  30
  normal   ¿  questiondown
  shift    ?  question
  capslock ?  question
key  75  0  30  30
  normal   á  aacute
  shift    Á  Aacute
  capslock Á  Aacute

and so on, letting there the remainin chars, as you see in


as before, the 'normal' keyes are working as they should, the 'caps'
keyes give wrong result; if one only HUP the 'enlightenment' processes,
the result is more or less random, if one starts the Xserver new, the
result stays in the small letter;

I think there is a bug in interpreting the file (or the values like
'Eacute', ...), and for the moment we
have to live with "letras minúsculas" (small letters) only for the moment;
