The missing iPhone key

A friend just made me realize that the iPhone (and iPod Touch) keyboard does not show a backtick (`) key on it’s keyboard when you are typing into text boxes. I tried every possible combination but no, it just wasn’t there. And to tease us mortals, it appears automagically in the email keyboard. Imagine the fate of those (like my sad friend) who have backticks in their passwords.

Now seriously, what is stopping them from doing this apart from being a snob. For fuck’s sake they have keys like (¿) and (¡) on the iPhone keyboard!

    Apparently, it has been discussed on Apple support Forums. No formal reply from Apple yet: http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID
