How about some accelerator keys for the commonly-used controls, e.g. Alt+O for OK, Alt+P for Preview?

While you're doing that, how about mapping 'Esc' to the 'Cancel' button?

To what are you referring? The website?

Sorry, Bob, yes. I was referring to the site.

Hmm, I never looked into implementing hotkeys via a web page before. I'll look into it!

I implement them in all my sites and HTAs, as I find using a mouse gets in the way of productive work!

You just add the ACCESSKEY property to the control and, to add usefulness, wrap the control in a LABEL tag. Failing to do the latter step means that, for example, a user would have to click the check-box itself, rather than the check-box or its text label (which is how Windows works, of course)

In this example Alt+L toggles the check-box being checked. Note that the accelerator key is underlined, as per Windows convention: <TR>
<TD>
<INPUT TABINDEX='4' TYPE='checkbox' ACCESSKEY='L' ID=chkUseLog NAME='chkUseLog'>
</TD>
<TD>
<LABEL FOR='chkUseLog'>
Check this box to <U>l</U>og activity (logs are written to %TEMP% folder)
</LABEL>
</TD>
</TR>
I'm sure you get the idea...

Thanks, the forum is the only code on the site not custom written and the modifications I've made have been unusually challenging so I'm not promising anything [;)] -- but that said, I will see what I can do!
