How to use access keys?

Most browsers support jumping to specific links by typing keys defined on the web site.

On Windows :

  • with Internet Explorer 6.0 and previous version, you can press ALT + an access key + ENTER
  • with Internet Explorer 7.0, you can press simultaneously ALT + Shift + an access key + ENTER
  • with Mozilla Firefox (any version), you can press simultaneously ALT + Shift + an access key
  • with Opera, you can press Shift+Esc + access key (without Alt)

On Linux, with Konqueror, Ctrl key is pressed and released, and then the access key is pressed.

On Macintosh, you can press Control + an access key.

Standards compliance

  1. All pages on this site is WCAG AAA approved, complying wih all priority 1, 2, and 3 guidelines of the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines. Again, this is a judgement call; many guidelines are intentionally vague and can not be tested automatically. I have reviewed all the guidelines and believe that all these pages are in compliance.
  2. All pages on this site validate as XHTML 1.0 Transitional . This is not a judgement call; a program can determine with 100% accuracy whether a page is valid XHTML. For example, check the home page for XHTML validity.

Navigation aids

  1. All pages have several access keys and home links to aid navigation in text-only browsers. Netscape 6 and Mozilla users can also take advantage of this feature by selecting the View menu, Show/Hide, Site Navigation Bar, Show Only As Needed (or Show Always).
  2. The home page and all archive pages include a search box (access key s).


  1. Many links have title attributes which describe the link in greater detail, unless the text of the link already fully describes the target.
  2. Links are written to make sense out of context.


  1. All content images used in this site include descriptive ALT attributes. Purely decorative graphics include null ALT attributes.
  2. Complex images include LONGDESC attributes or inline descriptions to explain the significance of each image to non-visual readers.

Visual design

  1. This site uses cascading style sheets for visual layout.
  2. This site uses only relative font sizes, compatible with the user-specified "text size" option in visual browsers.
  3. If your browser or browsing device does not support stylesheets at all, the content of each page is still readable.
