Noding without a keyboard on the Macintosh involves pulling down the Apple Menu and selecting Key Caps, a wonderful little program with a picture of your keyboard.

As you click, the characters highlight and text appears in a box which you can then copy and paste. When shift, option, control, or any combination of these keys is pushed, the keyboard on screen changes to reflect this.

This is darn fine software, and it hasn't changed since System 6.
