HTML5 (GMS 1.4) AltGr-Characters like '@' don't get Registered Correctly in HTML5


It seems like in the HTML5 target the variable keyboard_string doesn't recognize characters in combination with the AltGR key like '@' or '|'.
Instead, '@' produces 'q' and '|' produces nothing.

I'm using the following simple method to append the current content of keyboard_string to a variable:

if (keyboard_string != "")
  text += keyboard_string;
  keyboard_string = "";
Is this a known limitation? If so, are there any workarounds to get these characters recognized?

(By the way, I've tested the exact same code in GMS 2 and the characters are recognized correctly!)
