I don't think you should take the language as a determinant for
keyboard-layout. Dutch (Netherlands) and Dutch (Belgium) is used for a
slight difference in date-notation (and, before the euro, a difference
in currency).
The same goes for French (Standard) and French (Belgian) I think.

A "Belgian" keyboard has AZERTY keys. But, a friend of mine has his
Windows2000 set up with language "Dutch (Belgium)" but he has a "US

I think XWin is already checking the right Windows setting: 

(--) winConfigKeyboard - Layout: "00000813" (00000813)
(EE) Keyboardlayout "Belgisch (punt)" (00000813) is unknown

So, I think you should use 0x0813 for a Belgian keyboard-layout. (There
are two Belgian keyboard layouts: "Belgisch (punt)" and "Belgisch
(komma)" because some keyboards have a comma on the numeric keypad -- I
do think the "Belgisch (komma)" isn't used that much).
