Whom how as usual :)

The drama is named "Creation of Multi-platform UA".
Different platforms will never have something even
close to standard UI so that stage will never stand idle.

I mean that in OSes that follow CUA (and for their users, btw), things like

As I said in previous messages I personally think that <kbd> is better
for marking up access key functionality but I saw <u> used for such
purposes too.
