Perhaps someone has a list of Xy3 codes to compare with an Xy4 list. I remember seeing these lists
somewhere in the documentation, but I can’t be certain where, or lay my hands on it/them at
the moment.

I always believed that Xy4 could ‘understand’ all Xy3 codes correctly, but that it
used different some different defaults, added a few new codes, and defined page layouts in a
different way. In other words, I thought Xy4 could pretend to be Xy3 by using different defaults
and an exclusively Xy3-encoding keyboard file.
