According to the PC standard, his keyboard _is_ functional.
The keyboard has a latching "caps lock" key. And it has a
non-latching "up shift" key. When neither is down, letters
are entered in lower case. When either is down, letters are
in upper case.
On a type writer or a real computer, it's a logical OR
function. When both are down (shift lock OR up shift
OR both), letter keys generate capitols. This is what
On the PC, it's a logical XOR function. When both are
down (caps lock AND up shift), pressing a letter key
gets you a lower case letter. I have always considered
this a bug (not a feature) in the PC keyboard driver.
