Dvorak keyboard layout for the UL?

Howdy,

I'd like to get a small program to convert the UL keyboard to the
Dvorak layout. Does anyone have such a program or pointers to finding
one? If not, perhaps someone with an assembler could assemble a file I
found in wuarchive.wustl.edu, /mirrors/msdos/keyboard/dvorakxt.asm
that I would guess will work. It's included in the next message.

P.S. If you are interested, here is the layout. It is designed to
place the most common English letters under your strongest/fastest
fingers, and to minimize the cummulative amount of finger motion. I
have a good friend who types 150 wpm on Dvorak and around 90 wpm on
Qwerty. Record Dvorak speeds are above 200 wpm.
