In order for this to work in Internet Explorer 4.01 the LABEL will need a
FOR attribute.

<LABEL FOR=radio1 ACCESSKEY=r><INPUT TYPE="radio" ID=radio1
NAME="$TEXTBASE_NAME" VALUE="BACKFILE" CHECKED>Current research.</LABEL>

Internet Explorer 4.01 currently does not support implicit binding of
attributes (such as ACCESSKEY) to the labeled control.
