    What are the default Fn-Key Functions?
    I've got a MacBook Pro running OS X 10.6.8.

    Does anyone know what the default settings are for the function keys (say, if you are using the Finder)?

    For example, what's supposed to happen if you type Fn-1?

    I've figured out a few (Fn9-12), but want to know what the other function keys are set to do.

    Second question -- just as important -- is there any way native to OS X to reassign the function keys' functions? (or if not native to OS X --without having to use a script or something-- is there third-party software that you recommend?)

    (I found an Apple webpage discussing the Fn keys, but the content of the discussion is not available: currently "under maintenance.")

    This remapping program does what I need.
    (Documentation is a little thin, but the program works well, and it's free.)
