    Description

      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
      java version "1.5.0_05"
      Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0_05-b05)
      Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.5.0_05-b05, mixed mode)

      ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
      Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]
      Swedish keyboard

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      This occurs with both 1.4.2 and 1.5.0.

      It is not possible to write the tilde (~) sign from my Swedish keyboard. Note that ¨ and ^ works, but ~ from the same key (also needing space to display)
      does not work. I need to create it somewhere else and glue it in to get it.

      The ~ sign is crucial for running the statistical system R2.1.0, as it is used in the formula coding as a sign for "as described by" or something like that.

      STEPS TO REPRODUCE :
      Run the a "Simple NotePad" JNLP demo at http://java.sun.com/products/javawebstart/apps/notepad.jnlp

      Try to write the tilde (~) sign from a Swedish keyboard.

      EXPECTED BEHAVIOR :
      A tilde (~) appears in the NotePad.

      ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      No tilde (~) appears in the NotePad.

      REPRODUCIBILITY :
      This bug can be reproduced always.
