Okay, um, if you're topic title was supposed to be an english word then yeah, you've got a situation.

typing=garble... been getting into the juice a bit early this holiday season.... orrrrrr? What's goin' on? Did your language / location settings change on you?

Need more info.

If you're in OS 9, check your Control Panels under the Apple, make sure you've got the correct keyboard layout selected.

Sorry, I can't help if you're using OS X. I've only recently begun the migration.

In OS X, go under System Pref's --> International --> Keyboard and make sure you have US Keyboard layout selected and not CSA English (Which is Canadian French I believe)

I wish... Problem seems to be getting better. Only two-letter garbles now. a=sa s=sa b=bn n=bn My son may have got something in the keyboard, like eraser rubbings. What is a good way to clean it? Forced air?

That sounds like the old prank "Mitten Hands". It basically pretends you are trying to type with mittens on. If you are using MacOS 9 or earlier, look in your extensions (or control panels) folder for something called Mitten Hands.

It's weird. I'm now down to just a few keys that cause a problem this morning. It's still a nuisance, though.
