Hi John:

Thanks for the links, all good reads. And, I'm not required to do
anything regarding links -- I'm just looking to make the "right"

While the last link is interesting, it seems a bit on an overkill for
accessibility -- how many users are going to take the time to set-up
access keys for a single site?

Too bad an universal cookie could not be set-up to carry the user's
defaults across different web sites that are compliant to the
technique. Something like a client-side sniffer that would detect if
the technique was present on the newly accessed site and then
initialize a procedure to provide cookie data to it.

Food for thought.
