Another thing to try would be to use the first-letter pseudo class.
Of course it's not incredibly well supported, but it would allow you to
give the first letter a different formatting than the rest of the word. You
could then have something like:
<input type="button" name="blah" value="smurf" class="shortcut">

If users are "in the know" about access keys will they look for them on a
site? How do access keys translate in an aural browser/screen reader? Are
they processed at all? The url posted here seems to suggest that screen
readers/aural browsers ignore the access key attribute. Anyone know for sure?
