You'll be pleasantly surprised when you switch and suddenly have to  
type only one third of what you're used to for all those special  
keys, at least I was, despite also having learned the Danish keys.

As you know I have my keyboard “under” my screen and thus can't see  
the keys. In Xcode indent text is by default: option-shift-command 9.  
Sometimes I would get this wrong, which means the selection was  
erased, so I'd have to press command-Z to get it back, but then my  
fingers had moved from the numbers row, and I had to start all over,  
trying to hit the proper indent key again -- sometimes this could  
take me a few tries before I got it right ;)
