Yes, the platform conventions are radically different from each other. For
example, on Mac, Ctrl+S would have the label "^S", and Shift+Alt+Escape would
have the label "⇧⌥⎋", whereas on Windows it would have the label
"Shift+Alt+ESC". On Emacs, Control+Alt+X would have the label "C-M-x" whereas
on Windows it would have the label "Ctrl+Alt+X" whereas on Mac it would have
the label "^⌥X".

Anyway, the whole point of accesskey="" is that it has built-in fallback. If
you want your key to be something+A or something+B or something+C, you say
accesskey="A B C".
