But then I learned about accesskeys (actually I saw it on Mark Pilgrim's site first). It's pretty simple: Just add
accesskey="[key]" onto any A, AREA, BUTTON, INPUT, LABEL, LEGEND, or TEXTAREA. Then the user can press ALT+accesskey (CTRL+accesskey on Mac) to use the shortcut. So far, I've setup ALT+1 to go to the homepage. Perhaps there will be more to follow.
Update (2006-07-08 8:20am): This works fine in Firefox. But in Internet Explorer, the user needs to press enter after the accesskey combo. #technology
