Pipe character on Milestone/Droid

Most unix techie guys fond of the android system just because it is based on linux kernel. However the keyboard seems to lack some of the useful keys just like the pipe “|” character. Being one of those unix guys I had to find a way to summon the mighty |.  I found a answer something like  “not working when pressing shift-alt-minus” and indeed this combination produced a weird character instead the pipe. I kept pressing the keys then I found the “shift-alt-,” combination which outputs a perfect pipe character.

Regarding the tests in the connect bot it is working fine.
