the following page on the support site shows the different hardware keyboard layouts available and what they look like: http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=304933
more specifically, the US layout is http://a248.e.akamai.net/7/248/51/3049331182291562/www.info.apple.com/images/kba se/304933/304933_19b.gif and the international english layout is http://a248.e.akamai.net/7/248/51/3049331182291562/www.info.apple.com/images/kba se/304933/304933_08b.gif
it does look like the latter is ISO-based.
That's the page I was looking for!
The only question now remains is can I order U.S. layout from Europe. Last time I tried it with iBook though order was accepted, they just shipped me notebook with German keyboard. German phone support as well as retail in the times had no clue that there are different kinds of keyboards. I'd love to try that again, but unfortunately I still haven't deducted formula to filter out the always agreeing sales who would accept order for anything.
Re: Intl' English. Useless key was put in place of '~', '~' took some space from left Shift, '\' is where it is on typing machines. Essentially difference is only in five buttons, but four of them are important buttons. My friend from UK when faced with question "what for the button replacing '~' on intl' keyboard" replied that he never used it before. Go figure.
