Writers who use Interleaf on a Sun probably have a higher chance of
developing CTS than writers who use FrameMaker on a Sun simply because
Frame offers control key alternatives and Interleaf doesn't. I believe
this answers your general question, too--applications that offer
control key alternatives would lead to a less high rate of CTS than
those that are purely mouse-driven.
