I'm looking at porting an existing application to the browser. It currently
uses things like Alt-J to switch modes. Can I detect these in EWB? Or even
Ctrl variants? And of course stop any default actions.

It can definitely capture keypresses. Form OnKeyDown event gets the key as well as states for Shift, Ctrl and Alt.

Default actions - i don't believe so (my  quick test showed browser shortcut keys still took precedence).

Maybe you also need to set TForm.KeyPreview to True.
