This is a terrific compilation. I have one thing to add. 

I'm using Communicator 4.08 for the Macintosh, and unless this
changed between 4.08 and 4.61, you can load the previous/next
document using Command+left arrow and Command+right arrow
in addition to the commands listed in Keren's document:
Load previous document  Command+[
Load next document Command+]

Keren Moses, a graduate assistant here at UIUC, put together an initial 
table of important keyboard functionalities for Netscape navigator for 
Windows, UNIX and the Macintosh products.  I would like to continue to 
develop this resource for use by Lakespur and the techniques document. 
Please review and comment on the accuracy of the information and other 
important keyboard support that we would recommend to Lakespur and can use 
in the UA techniques document.

One important issues is that in the UNIX and Macintosh versions, Keren only 
observed that the TAB key moved the focus between text edit boxes, no other 
active elements could be accessed via the keyboard.

Thanks,
Jon
