Just what I said. I checked several Macs and they are just as I
described. The delete key backspaces. And, on desktops, there is
an additional delete key to the right which has the icon something
like [x> which signifies forward delete. I don't have a "flat"
keyboard so I can't say anything about the most recent equipment.
