- Is the Option key, also called Alt.

- It's called Upwards Arrow with Double Stroke, and usually represents page up. If your keyboard lacks that specific key, doing Fn+ does the trick.

Thanks! This really did the trick. –  perr0 Nov 8 '12 at 14:48
    
I can't understand why Apple's keyboards print the command symbol on the Command key, but don't print the option/alt and control symbols on their respective keys. –  daGUY Dec 3 '12 at 22:07
