I put together a few tests and results for accesskey attributes in HTML.

They show wide variations in the way shortcut keys are handled across 
browsers.

Firefox on a Mac worked ok for basic ASCII and Devanagari, but not for a 
latin1 character outside ASCII, nor for greek. It also didn't work for 
any test that required the use of the shift key to access a particular 
character. It only supported case-insensitive matching for ASCII characters.

Chrome passed all the tests on the Mac, including tests for keys that 
produce more than one character.  Use of the shift key to access a 
character failed on Windows 10 for ASCII and Greek, but worked for 
Devanagari.

Safari was like Chrome except that, like Firefox, it only supported 
case-insensitive matching for ASCII characters.

Edge was a very mixed bag, but one standout observation is that 
Devanagari wasn't supported at all (although Greek was partially supported).
