IE 5.0 and probably 4.0 supports multiple definitions of the same access
key.  When you type the access key the focus moves to the next element with
that access key defined.  So for your situation it move to the next link
with that access key defined and pressing it again would move to the next
link.  To select the link you type the Enter key.  

The key though is letting your use know that ACCESSKEYs are available.

I do not believe Navigator supports the ACCESSKEY feature.
