/pay'stee/ An adhesive label designed to be attached to a key on a keyboard to
indicate some non-standard character which can be accessed through that key.
Pasties are likely to be used in APL environments, where almost every key is
associated with a special character. A pastie on the R key, for example, might
remind the user that it is used to generate the rho character. The term properly
refers to nipple-concealing devices formerly worn by strippers in concession to
indecent-exposure laws; compare tits on a keyboard.
