I need to be able to input backticks, tildes ~ and pipe | on my Desire. Can't find the keys - is there some trick I'm missing?

UPDATE: This allows entry of special coder-friendly characters: http://code.google.com/p/hackerskeyboard/

If I'm remembering correctly, the default Sense keyboard just doesn't have the backtick or pipe characters, though I thought it had the tilde. I could be mistaken, though; it's been a while since I last used Sense. –  eldarerathis Aug 23 '11 at 14:16

You should place that update as an answer to your own question, I think. –  Firefeather Jan 4 '12 at 16:49
