You said you passed an access an element,  in a docuement, to IE after
passing it through an XSLT and you say that it worked. Please be more
explicit. ... Did it just show up in the DOM or did you also do something
to add keyboard support for the access key "t."

             05/30/2007 09:31          Access element test pages           

Dear WG,
I've tested an implementation of access element in <head> of a doc, with
"targetid" and "key" attributes; it is based on a page previously made by
Steven [1] and rendered as XML.
Natively the element is showed in the DOM tree on IE 6/7, FF, KHTML-based
(Safari, etc) and Opera 9+, but it has no effect.

So i tried [2] to support almost FF via Mozilla XBL, and finally it works,
with the extra addiction of an xhtml "xmlns" attribute on the access
element and on the element to be linked (the section with id="text"). The
key assigned is "t".

A void key attribute has (should have) no effect.

IE doesn't handle this kind of workaround, so I made another version of the
page with an XSLT transformation [3].  A similar solution has been handled
by Sjoerd Visscher [4]: the page, served as XHTML 1.0 Strict, works in IE
as expected.

Best regards,
