Can't bind backslash on UK QWERTY keyboard
Windows Vista x64, Microsoft X4 keyboard.
Trying to bind the \ key via the in-game options menu doesn't work and binds 0x00 instead. Putting "bind \ whatever" in autoexec.cfg doesn't work either.
Probably because it's a command key/character. Just like trying to use it in a file name. Can't use it.

It can't be used in a filename because backslash is the path delimiter. Other games and applications handle backslash correctly.
It's because quake uses the US keyboard layout and that key doesn't exist there, as such its an out of range key and quake collectively treats ALL of those as 0x00
