Making an open/close brace on a MAC Keyboard

Apple's premium range of computers based on the Mac OS do not have any key for making an open/close brace. Generally on the keyboard, this open/close brace, also called the Left Curly Brace and the Right Curly Brace, is present. This brace which is denoted by { } is absent on a Mac keyboard.



This absence of the character may cause inconvenience for its users. This can, however, be dealt with - the open/close brace can be entered through a combination of keyboard keys on a Mac.
