How can I type a backtick (accent grave, or "`") on an European (Dutch) apple keyboard ?

Do you mean this character : ` ? – Rabskatran Feb 9 '11 at 13:56
@Pierre W yes, that's backtick – Patrick Feb 9 '11 at 14:37
On mine, this character is under de £, next to the <return> key. It's a Europeen azerty (French I guess). I'm sure it won't help you :-/ – Rabskatran Feb 9 '11 at 16:33

According to this images from Apple's KB article, it appears to be between the Z and shift.
