Default Random Problem...

It seems my @ and " are switched round.

SHIFT-2 should produce the " symbol, but it gives me the @ instead. The same applies in reverse - SHIFT-' gives ".

This is not a problem with my keyboard - I tried it out on Word and Excel, and it works fine there.

my laptop has the " as SHIFT 2, but it always comes up as @, and vice versa with the ' and SHIFT ' resulting in " despite having the @ symbol. SHIFT 2 should always produce the @ symbol despite what the keys are - besides there is nothing "wrong" as such, its not like it doesnt work - just get used to it mate

Is that the layout on your keyboard?
If so your keyboard layout is possible a different country style.

Such as UK style but the computer software uses the american layout.
You can swap that in your keyboard settings :P

The problem, as I said, is with the website and not my keyboard - it used to work just fine, but something has happened at some point so now it doesn't!

Edit Weird, it seems to have reset itself...

Odd. Normally this means the keyboard has been set to US English. Odd that you would get it with a specific site. Have you cleared your cookies since it happened? If it was some kind of site setting then deleting those may have reset it...

Now that is pretty unusual. Usually keyboards layouts are set at the OS level, not the site/application level .

The only thing that may have effected that would be the character encoding used to serve the site, but I don't think that would have changed recently... At least to my knowledge.

In the UK the '2' key + shift = " and the ',' key + shift = @
