On the main validator page
http://validator.w3.org/

I easily tab to "Local File" and thence to "Browse". But if I then press Enter,
expecting to get a "Choose File" window, instead the cursor ends
up at "Validate" and I find myself at the "undefined URI" page.

On the Accesskey page
http://validator.w3.org/accesskeys.html

it says:

"The following accesskeys are implemented throughout the site in an attempt to help
users using screen-readers."

Don't limit yourselves! I have repetitive-strain issues that make me prefer
keyboarding if at all possible, and I use Accesskeys whenever I can. Besides, I can
move around faster using keyboard commands than most users can with a mouse.
