Hi Eleanor.

Those rubber keyboards I personally hate, but they'd good if you're working 
in all weathers as they're completely sealed and some of them can even go in 
the sink for a good clean.

All the best, Ibrahim.

I've just purchased a rubber one Ibrahim, do not know the name but if anyone
is interested can let you know.  It has rechargable batteries and can fold
in to 3.  The down side, if there is one, may be having to find a firm
surface when writing on it.  The F and J keys are clearly marked too.  It
can be used with Windows devices as I understand.  Cost just under 50 Euros
in Compu B in Ireland.
