The instructions are in the testcases. It seems that Opera, Firefox and  
Internet Explorer determine which accesskey to use (in case of duplicates  
in compound document by reference cases) based on the focused document  
("window"). (File 002.htm.) When there are no duplicate accesskeys Firefox  
and Internet Explorer also look for accesskeys in child documents that  
match the activated key and Opera does not. (File 001.htm.)

Note that these are just some simple testcases.

(This was tested on Windows where for Firefox and Internet Explorer you  
use ALT+key and for Opera you use SHIFT+ESC in order to get into accesskey  
mode after which you can press a key.)
