I have almost no Amaya experience, but I do have the same environment as yours, so I'll give this a shot.

On the right side of the Amaya window you should see a vertical column of tools: Elements, Style, Apply class, List of style sheets, Files, Attributes, Special characters.

If you DON'T see all that, press F8 to display it or select Views -> Show/Hide toolbars -> Show tools

Find Attributes among the list of tools in that right column.  Click on the > in front of the word to open a small viewing area (you can't click on the word itself...).

Now look back at your displayed web page, click the location you want to examine, then hit F2.  The lowest-level element at that location (in your example a 'sentence', which probably is a paragraph element) will be highlighted.  The current attributes for that element will be shown in the Attribute viewing area in the right column.  If you press F2 again it will select the parent of the element previously selected.  In your case that's apparently the Body element.

To edit or delete an attribute, click on it in the list.  A copy of the value will appear in an input box just below the list.  You can edit it there and press Enter to stuff it back into the attribute list, or click the X to delete the attribute altogether.

To add a new attribute, go to the Insert box below the attribute list and click once there.  A list of applicable attribute keywords will appear, from which you can select the one you want.  It will be added to the Attribute list, but without a value.  Type the value into the input box at the bottom of the Attribute list and press Enter to store it.

I've just installed AMAYA on my iMac OSX 10.6.5.
I am using the original keyboard but using the F2 button for getting
attributes within a tag won't work.
When I press F2 the sentence is highlighted, and pressing F2 again the whole
document is highlighted.

What do I have to do to get the list of attributes?

Thanks in advance for the help.
