Shortcuts require you to hold down the search key while pressing a letter or number. It's a bit counterintuitive, I know, since shift/fn/caps all only require one short press before pressing another character, while Search needs to be held down as you press the other character. I suspect it's because Search was originally intended to be a button, and buttons unlike keys, were given a "long press" function. So opening up short-cuts is Search's "long press" function.
[*]This may be an app issue, but not all the keys function in Terminal Emulator (both from Dev Tools and "Android Terminal Emulator" from the Market). It seems like it's mostly the useful ones (_ ! $ ctrl/ok), though being able to get the pipe with fn-l is awesome![/LIST]
Apps aren't required to respect the keymap. They're free to do what they want with the keycodes that are sent to them. For example, terminal emulator doesn't respect the symbol key, but the browser does.
My Tilt2 thanks you, you've saved it from an "accidental" fall into a toilet for at least a few more days
