Is it noteworthy that the won symbol appears on my Android phone with a single (not a double) horizontal line through it? It took me hours to verify that the modified symbol appearing on my phone's virtual keyboard was the won symbol, and it sure would have been nice if that was mentioned here. I have an old Android OS on a samsung phone...lets see: OS is Android 2.3.6 (Gingerbread.uvle1) I think I've seen a similar representation elsewhere, but haven't located where...

"Most Korean keyboards input 0x5C when the won sign key is pressed"Edit

I have tagged this phrase as dubious because it is not technically correct. All keyboards generate a scan code that the OS (exceptionally, an application) interprets. Keyboards are very simple, their microcode doesn't need awareness of what is engraved on the key. It just needs to tell the OS that the third key on the second row was pressed while the first key on the fifth row was pressed. It is an OS setting that determines what happens next. IMO, this whole sentence needs to be rewritten. --John Maynard Friedman (talk) 12:47, 9 June 2020 (UTC)
