So it almost feels that the keyboard layout should be part of the
selection somehow ie. selecting a keyboard layout automatically updates
the always visible keyboard preview, rather than manually having to
click on a preview button to see the results of your selection. I guess
I'm not convinced that an end user has any idea what the various
keyboard layout descriptions mean and that pictures speak louder than
words - ok, I'm slightly biased and narrow minded with a US layout.

As to how you can present that in a user interface is another question.
