Hi Steve,

do you mean

<span role="link">

Here, I suppose, we need 

<span role="link" aria-haspopup="true">

To indicate a (custom) context menu ..

>>> how does one let users know that they have tu use a particular keystroke

This could be e.g. an ARIA 2.0 extension, we call this "Tutor Messages". Could use an (to be invented) "aria-help" property for that or role extensibility.

Or do you mean

<a aria-haspopup="true">

Here, aria-haspopup is superfluous for every <A> has a context menu (invoked with Shift+F10 in e.g. IE and FF)

Subject: indicating a context menu

What is the mest way to indicate the presence of a context menu on a
link using ARIA?

aria-haspopup seems inadequate for the task.

how does one let users know that they have tu use a particular
keystroke (http://dev.aol.com/dhtml_style_guide#popupmenu)
