The 81xx's don't have the same keyboard as the other BBs - that combination doesn't exist on the Pearls

Technically, the Pearl is a QWERTY keyboard too, only condensed. But, some of the doubled keys on regular keyboard BBs aren't on the Pearl. That "ALT+Shift+del" combination is close to the "Left Alt + Right Caps + Del" combination since the Pearl has only one Alt key (and it is on the left side) and only one shift key (and it is, somewhat, on the right) - but, no, it doesn't work.
