    I use ConnectBot (an ssh client) on my HTC Desire regularly. I can get most of the keys, such as ctrl, tab, escape, that are on a standard PC keyboard by using ConnectBot's "virtualkeyboard". However I can't get certain symbols that are necessary at a Linux command line - in particular the pipe symbol '|'.

    Anyone know how to get the pipe symbol onto the normal HTC Sense keyboard? or anyone know a better keyboard app? I tried Full Keyboard but it doesn't have the pipe symbol.

    Try Hacker's Keyboard by Klaus Weidner. It has the pipe symbol as well as all the other special characters. Esc, tab, ctrl, alt, del, everything. It works brilliantly, even on my low end and small screen Wildfire. It has a special compatibility mode for ConnectBot. You can get it frm the Android market, or from the dev's website.
