Default OS X stickers on keyboard? - 03-23-2010, 02:40 AM

I dislike reverse-engineering my keyboard in my head every time i have to use Option or anything, so I was thinking about making custom stickers for as many keys as possible, maybe change the font so it looks more Mac-like. Most are self-explanatory, like Delete and Return, but some are more confusing. Here's a list of some i need advice on.

Applications (between right Alt and Ctrl) - is there any function for this at all? If not, I'll just fill it in with a sharpie or something.

Insert - Again, is there any function for this? Apple says Fn+Enter

F1-F3 functions - functions for display and sound work (F4, F5, F7-F9), but what about F1-F3?

Opinion: Prnt Screen - Displays Cross-hairs for screenshot, but I use Skitch to screenshot with different keystroke. Should I leave it blank?

Also, anyone with experience on adding keyboard stickers. Advice? Warnings?

Thanks =D

EDIT: As an afterthought, you can easily change the Control keys to Option in System Preferences, but is there any way to change only the Right-hand Control to register as Option a la an Apple Keyboard, through OS X settings or perhaps a 3rd party software?
