[UI Events-key] Keyboard
Event .key value of printable keys with Control are usually wrong on mac OS
When Control is pressed, KeyboardEvent.key should be computed without Control key (except when Ctrl+Foo causes inputting text). However, as far as I tested, some keys work as expected but especially when Shift key is also pressed, the value is odd. For example, when I press Ctrl+Semicolon, key value is ';' as expected but Ctrl+Shift+Semicolon, key value is also ';', rather than '+' with Japanese Keyboard layout. I guess that we need to reimplement around here when Ctrl key is pressed.
