[[
8) In the boxes describing keydown, keyup and keypress, you describe the 
altKey, and related event properties using the word "depressed". 
Elsewhere you've used vaguer language like "activated", and I've assumed 
that is to account for the possibility of locking modifier keys for 
accessibility reasons.  If so, you should probably change "key is 
depressed" to "modifier is active" in these boxes.  (Past tense might 
actually be better: "modifier was active").
