I use a JavaScript, for example the one on http://2bweb.de for MSIE. The
script is called keypress.js and can be included so that only MSIE uses it
(see code in HTML on the mentioned page).

A page which uses a bit more accesskey is www.barrierefreies-webdesign.de.
For example, by using Alt+2 (MSIE/Mozilla) you will always get to the next
page - a "replacement" for the not supported LINK element in MSIE. Alt+3
gets you to the previous page.
