Filipinos are commonly using the standard US keyboard layout because they are very familiar with it. However, some Filipino symbols, such as the Philippine peso sign (a "P" with a single or double strikethrough) and the "ñ" (enye, an "n" with a tilde above it) were only used occasionally.

So I designed my proposal of a standard Filipino keyboard layout that includes the peso sign, scientific and mathematical symbols, Baybayin alphabet and punctuation, the Ñ (part of the modern Filipino orthography; Ng is to be treated as two separate letters), various punctuation marks, and copyright (C in a circle) and registered trademark (R in a circle) symbols.

I, the undersigned, petition for my countrymen, the Filipinos, to approve my proposed Filipino keyboard layout (based on the US-International keyboard layout) that will include the following:

1. Philippine peso sign (P with strikethrough);

2. Scientific and mathematical symbols (includes the multiplication and division symbols);

3. The Ñ and ñ symbols;

4. Baybayin alphabet (Baybayin is a pre-Spanish Philippine writing system which is a member of the Brahmic family (and an offshoot of the Vatteluttu alphabet) and is believed to be in use as early as the 14th century. It continued to be in use during the Spanish colonization of the Philippines up until the late 19th century.)

5. various punctuation marks and miscellaneous symbols.
