Open Word 2000 (probably works in 97 also).
Type a few letters in the doc and click
the Close button on the *document*. A dialog
box opens that asks, "Do you want to save the
changes you made to Document1?"

Pressing *either* CTRL+Y or ALT+Y opens
the Save As dialog box. Pressing *either*
CTRL+N or ALT+N closes the document.

There is nothing in the dialog box to indicate
that these shortcuts are available.
