Is the Font shown on the Keyboard keys the only style available? If so, where can I get other styles?

Also, if I get the PS2 connector, would a PS2 to USB adapter work for the keyboard?

These are pre-buy questions. I am considering this and a XArmor.

Currently we only offer our products with one font. No other fonts are available and we do not take custom orders.

Adapters [From our FAQ #3]:
Quote:
Deck products will not work with common USB to PS/2 adapters. Most (if not all) of these adapters were meant to be replacement adapters for original equipment that supports both USB and PS/2 interfaces (Deck keyboards only support USB, including the USB version of the 105-key Legend); these adapters will not simply convert any generic USB keyboard into a generic PS/2 keyboard. To date, the adapters that we’ve examined simply map "USB D-" to "PS/2 Data" and "USB D+" to "PS/2 Clock" (as well as +5V to +5V and gnd to gnd).

KVM switches fall under the same example. If you have a USB Deck, your best bet is to buy a USB KVM switch (the same applies to PS2 with a PS2 KVM).

Thanks, the conversion looks really simple, I found the schematic. PS2 conectivity looks to be going the way of the Dino's. It's a bit concerning when getting a keyboard that might be locked into a Port that evaporates. Maybe a diode will work instead of cutting out the resistor.
