No, but it might be a "bug" in the DTD mechanism.

From the XHTML 1.0 Strict DTD (The one I had handy, sorry)

The accesskey Attribute is a %Character; Entity, which in turn is CDATA
which cannot
be limited to ONE character.  Looking at the definitions of %Character; and
%Number; you'll see what I mean ...

<!ENTITY % Character "CDATA">
    <!-- a single character from [ISO10646] -->

<!ENTITY % Number "CDATA">
    <!-- one or more digits -->

Validation against a Schema will fix this problem.
