    W3C keyname

    Tiny library that exports a function keyName that takes a keyboard event and returns a KeyboardEvent.key-style string. Will use the actual key property of the event if available, and fall back to a value synthesized from the keyCode otherwise.

    Probably often wrong on non-US keyboards, since the correspondence between a key code and the character it produces when shift is held is predicted based on a hard-coded table. Meant as a fallback for KeyboardEvent.key, not a replacement.

    The lookup tables from key codes (event.keyCode) to names are exported as base (when Shift isn't held) and shift (when Shift is held).
