Is it possible, on a web page, to use the & character to create a shortcut? Thus if
I had a radio button with the caption '&Hello' then the Alt-H would select it? If
so, how can I do this in EWB? It doesn't seem to want to allow it with plain
appending.

Don't believe so - happy to be corrected though.

The issue is browser specific also - Alt-H is technically Help menu in
IE itself and might not be passed into EWB app at javascript level.

You could try to capture the keypress on form level and then call
appropriate handler but that would mean handling all yourself. have not
tried to see if this works so just an idea.

A good idea. Since I know things like Trello can handle keys, it should work. Plus
the keys I'm interested in are actually 1-9 & S.
Will report back.
