"expect" works both ways, unfortunately - you should expect that European 
keyboards on the Mac will not work out-of-the-box for rather important 
characters like {}|~[]. Aquamacs fixes this (which might not be an incentive 
for you if you have a US keyboard). It also supports a number of other 
Mac-specific things - http://aquamacs.org. I understand that some Mac-specific 
adaptions are not everybody's cup of tea (not "pure" Emacs) but I find them 
very useful.

Warm regards,
 Stefan
