It's my impression that Internet Explorer 4.01 does not support the
ACCESSKEY attribute within <A> elements.  I also believe that ACCESSKEY is
not support at all under Netscape Navigator, but someone more familiar with
that product should speak up on that.

Subject: accesskey problem?


I do not seem to be able to get the "accesskey" attribute to work in my
pages.  Example: <http://www.doi.gov/indext.html>  (or, at least, once
it is in, I can't make it work from my PC.) Could someone please tell me
what I am doing wrong?  (I have deliberately put the accesskey attribute
in a working text-only page even in hopes someone will try it, see it
doesn't work, and tell me how to do it.)  It sure looks like such a
great accessibility idea.  Thanks
