I have an original iBook with its built-in US layout keyboard. I also have a
"narrow" iMac US keyboard (F1-F12 and no Delete or Insert key). I also have
access to a UK Apple Pro Keyboard. This is the one with the F13, F14, & F15

In the order F13, F14, then F15, with showkey -k, I get 85, 115, and 119.
With showkey -s, I get 0x55 0xd5, 0x73 0xf3, and 0x77 0xf7.
