Hi Cabuto,

From what you are writing, I suppose you are trying to type in a listing that has been printed out in a different kind of letter than the standard commodore 64 font.
The symbol you describe is obtained by pressing and holding shift, combined with the key that is defined as "clear screen" in your emoulator (Usually the "home" key on your PC keyboard). Which is what the original key combination on a real Commodore should be, too, incidentally.
Subsequently {Home} would be the Home key without shift.
{Cursor up} would be the key you defined for cursor up. Down, left and right would be their respective keys etc.
The color combinations such as {Black} or {White} would be with the Tab-Key combined with one of the numbers 1 - 8 from the regular keyboard (Not the keypad).
Pressing the Ctrl key combined with numbers 1 - 8 gives the colours you would get when pressing the commodore key (Yes, Ctrl is the preset mapping for the Commodore key).
Reverse on/off is Tab plus 9 (on) or Tab plus 0 (Off).

Then there are various graphical characters that would be on the sides of the regular keyboard keys on a regular commodore. Those would be obtained by pressing either the Shift-key with that key (Shift + Q would give a solid circle symbol) or the Alt-Key with that key (Alt + Q gives a T on its side. Then there is upper and lower case typing. In lower case, typing shift will get a capital letter (Also the graphical symbols indicating colours or graphic characters) change. You switch betweeen upper- and lower case by pressing and holding Shift, then tapping Ctrl, then releasing both.

Hope this helps!
