I've just had a strong suggestion that keys in manual text, as in

Click "Next."

appear as actual keys. I immediately began thinking in terms of inline
anchored frames and button screen capture gifs, or blank button gifs
with text overlaid.

A quick search of the tw archive turned up several messages about using
a keyboard font instead (with Word at least). I'm using Frame. Is this
the way to go? Does the font somehow have a border around it, or...?
