           Summary: [REGRESSION][BUG] AltGr key no longer works when
                    editing text in translations

The AltGr key of native keyboards no longer works. This is a severe bug with
MANY international keyboards.

It is now intepreted as if we pressed Alt for inserting $placeholders.

For example it i impossible to enter the following basic ASCII characters on a
standard French keyboard :
  # { [ | ` \ @ ] }
as well as the following symbols :
  ¤ €
and some accents. Many extended keyboards using AltGr (or Ctrl+Alt) for
entering some other characters are also unusable.

This is a severe regression of functionality when the recent addition facility
for Alt+1 (which was not working anyway, but not dramatic) is clearly optional.

Most languages (except English which does not need translations most of the
time) are affected.

Please revert this change (bug seen when translating on Meta)
