aloha, all!

it would be well worth everyone in the WAI's time to review robert 
burns' analysis of the objectives in improving accesskey (based on 
the pro and con argumets listed under the rationale for deprecating 
accesskey)

the accesskey deprecation page in HTML WG wiki space is located at:

http://esw.w3.org/topic/HTML/DroppedAttributeAccesskey

RBurns' contributions can be directly accessed using the following long,
probably line-wrapping archive-breaking URI below:

<http://esw.w3.org/topic/HTML/DroppedAttributeAccesskey#head-
22efce57efc348efacfea2261f305615a5882d12>

or, if you are able to navigate by headers, it appears on the wiki 
page under the level 2 heading "Considering solutions other than 
removing the attribute"

it is an excellent review of the pros and cons and suggested 
improvements, and highly recommended reading for anyone interested 
in the future and/or improvement of the accesskey as defined in 
HTML 4.01
