So therefore - ValueOn will be 00000c09 and Valueoff will be 00000409?

Do I need the following as well? OR just between Class user and End Part?

PART “Danish (Standard)” CHECKBOX     ; Standard Danish keyboard ;
VALUENAME “2¿
VALUEON “00000406¿
VALUEOFF “00000000¿
END PART
END POLICY
END CATEGORY

Aditya AroraCommented:
you need to delet the below in your case.

PART “Danish (Standard)” CHECKBOX     ; Standard Danish keyboard ;
VALUENAME “2¿
VALUEON “00000406¿
VALUEOFF “00000000¿
END PART

So therefore - ValueOn will be 00000c09 and Valueoff will be 00000409    is correct.

Then the following steps as advised by you:
Save the above code as keyboard.adm file into the folder C:Windows\inf on the server

Step 2: Create and link a new GPO (call it something like AU English Keyboard Layout)

Step 3: Edit the Keyboard Layout GPO

Step 4: In the Group Policy Editor Window; under User Configuration, right click Administrative Templates and choose Add Template

Step 5: select the keyboard.adm template and click OK until you are returned to the Group Policy Editor window

Step 6: with Templates still selected on the left hand side, select view from the toolbar, and filtering

Step 7: make sure the bottom 2 tick boxes (only show configured policy settings and only show policy settings that can be fully managed) are un-ticked

Step 8: Browse to the following setting (using the view on the left hand side) User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Custom Settings > Keyboard Layout

Step 9: Enable the policy setting listed on the right hand side (AU English Keyboard Layout)
