Smarmy paperclips not withstanding, I just ran through the MS Office 97
Suite of programs as well as Windows 95 and several of its subordinate
programs. I also checked out VISIO and MS Exchange. Only in MS Exchange
seemed to interpret <F1> as a context sensitive key. The others gave me the
dialog. FYI, I killed the smarmy paperclip some time back.
