Hi all,

I am attempting to implement a system for slide presentation over the web.  I have a main region containing a sequence of graphics and audio within <PAR> tags, and below that, a region containing a list of buttons allowing the user to navigate to the various slides within the presentation.

Now supposing the number of slides was greater than 10, how could one implement access keys for those buttons?  Now on windows platforms if you press on the alt key and then do a sequence of numbers you can produce characters to appear on screen. I'm wondering if that would work for me (e.g you could press ALT+17 and that would take you to slide 17).

Below is what alt + 1 to 10 looks like

☺☻♥♦♣♠•◘○◙

(I'm not sure if the mail relay will reproduce what I see before me but it is essentially)

a smiley with the fill white and the line black
a smiley with the fill black and the line white
a heart symbol
a diamonds symbol
a clubs symbol
a spade symbol
a dot
a white dot inside a black square
a circle with fill white and line black
a white circle enclosed within a black square

Anyway, my question is, does anyone know how to implement access Keys for non standard ascii characters?
