I also have an azerty keyboard, but am used to the qwerty and I want to know how I can modify the keyboard to have a "delete" function. Deleting using the backspace is laborious and I miss being able to delete from the front of the text. Any ideas?

I assume you have some model of MacBook and you are not using an external keyboard. Is that the case? – user9290 Oct 8 '11 at 14:44

If you have an Apple keyboard: fn-Backspace is a substitute for Delete. Depending on the application Ctrl-D works as well.
