Each control function has an appearance that helps to remember its meaning. When [CTRL] or [ALT] is pressed it will effectively press Ctrl or Alt key (on a PC keyboard) down and have an effect on the next character after which the Ctrl or Alt key is released.

Controls have more simultaneous keys than common characters in order to prevent activating them unintentionally while typing.
