The code I'm using is from http://sdldoc.csn.ul.ie/sdlkeysym.php, so I think
it can't be that bad :)
But I replaced it now with:

if(Event.key.keysym.unicode < 0x80 && Event.key.keysym.unicode > 0)

But the unicode member of keysym is still always zero. I already tried to
use SDL_GetKeyName() and it gives me the correct key name.

Any ideas?
