Yes, because I serve in different languages. The access key sets fits the
particular language.
It would also depend on what navigation scheme your wiki relies, on whether
your users prefer keyboarding vs. mouse-handling, etc.

Donno... And frankly, don't care :) I'd expect that people who interact with
the wiki a lot (fast prototyping, collaborative projects and such), would
use the access keys (my users do only CMS-like web site maintenance)

Not questions, these. The second part (1) is rendered moot under Firefox 4,
since users can change the size of any field by dragging the bottom-right
corner, Mac-style.

Yeah. And as far as we know we are part of the only civilization in the
Universe. ;) And trees don't make any sound when they fall in the forest
because there's nobody there to hear it.
