Why is it so hard to find a US-International keyboard? It's easier to find one with a Dvorak layout!

The US-International layout replaces one of the Alt keys with an Alt-Gr key which lets you access all kinds of special characters such as the Euro (€), Pilcrow (¶), copyright (©), section (§) and other symbols.  You can also type accented characters by pressing the accent key, then the letter (for instance, the tilde (~) then the letter n to type an ñ).  With the standard US layout, you have to either use Character Map or memorize complex keystrokes (to type ñ, you have to hold down the Alt key and type 0241 on the keypad).
