Proposal (3) 
Visual Keyboard Shortcut Indicator (Content Display): Provide a user 
setting in which any *recognized* keyboard shortcuts for currently 
visible content are visually indicated (e.g., with overlays).

Jim: what is an 'overlay'?

JR: I was thinking about something the User Agent draws that hovers over 
the rendered page. The reason for this is that in HTML accesskeys are 
independent of any text label...so you can't just render an underline 
under a letter in the label (in fact there may be no label).
