    silly question about dock keyboard

    this is a rather inane question about the dock keyboard, does anyone know why the numbers 1 and 6 and the up/down arrows are highlighted in white? Like I said not an earth shaking issue, just curious.

    Actually not all that silly, but don't have a clue. Sorry.

    Well after a pretty thorough Google search, the only thing I found was 1 post on XDA stating that 1/6 and up/dn with white circles are for scrolling

    Quote
    "The white circles on the up/ down and 1/6 keys are for scrolling. For example, to scroll down you would hold down the up key and tap or hold down the down key"

    hold down the up key and tap or hold down the down key

    Makes perfectly good sense. Now I know but I wonder for how long I'll remember which is which.

    I found some discussion about this back on the Netbooks ASUS produced. ASUS claimed it was for increased visibility in low light, similar to the nubs on the F and J keys.

    That makes more sense than hold up and down to scroll

    yes the visabiliy answer seems to make more sense, as far as scrolling, the 1 and 6 keys dont seem to play into it at all. wouldn't it be nice if someone from Asus monitored these forums and stepped forward with answers?

    maybe they ran out of white paint for the others and had to cut back, or is that a silly answer (by the way I'm bored:-P)
