putting the chars into "" quotes has the side effect that if you hit the
char in the keyboard it is selected and printed above the top row of the
keyboard and waiting for completion as a word; even the capitals are
correctly printed on this line; but if you then touch the char (or word)
to confirm it, it gets moved above wrong, as small letter for example;

I also don't want that behaviour, they should be moved directly to the
messages and not waiting for further assembling/completion; isn't this
caused by the "" as I understand some comment in Numbers.kbd?
