Not exactly connected with Sue's otherwise excellent treatise on keyboard
shortcuts, but there *are* Windows programs that do not recognize the standard
Windows keyboard shortcuts, e.g., CorelDraw 3 recognizes only the Windows 3.0
shortcuts (the infamous Ctrl-Inst, Shift-Inst, etc.) When editing text,
pressing any Shift-Cursor key switches you out of text editing mode. I've also
hit some programs (not CD3) that had dialog box items with neither alt-key
accelerator or ability to tab to the item -- you *have* to use the mouse.

But then, I've done entire productive workdays without even touching the
pointing device (a Wacom graphics tablet.) I mostly work with words, and prefer
keeping the fingers on the keyboard!

Actually, Charles, the keyboard equivalents are still there and they
still work -- and they're pretty much the same for all software that
runs on the Windows platform. Ctrl+ arrows still moves the cursor to
the next word. Add shift to highlight as you go. Even works in your
e-mail app. Windows is much friendlier than the Mac in this respect.<
