I have just received the CueCats, thank you.

I can verify the Caps Lock strangeness: it has to be ON to get
correct case for the letters. Another weird thing was that I
did not back the correct strings from my last example:

qwer !"#%&QWER

Note the appearance of eight bit characters - they are Swedish
accented characters. Of course, I tested it on a machine with
a Swedish keyboard, and the scanned data comes in as had it been
entered on the keyboard. So the data must have been translated
by the OS through a keyboard map.

Neither of this causes any problems for us, since we will use
string of only digits.
