I haven't read the article by Bruce Tognazzini but I agree with his
conclusions. I suppose that there are some circumstances where
keyboard shortcuts would be helpful and I have a list of them on a
card at my workstation. However, I rarely use them because I find the
mouse to be more convenient, much faster, and less prone to error.

Bruce Tognazzini in _TOG on Interface_ makes the case about as well as
possible (note I didn't say he convinced me) that the greater speed of
keyboard shortcuts is an illusion. ...RM
