Hi Guys,

Realize most of you are diligently studying the FB^3 Docs; don't blame you.

In the "few" Windoze Programs I have written, I have come to the realization that
there IS one feature that the "Dark Side" has that we don't; except in a couple
of applications like "FullWrite" - which I still use on occasion. This is Menu
Access other than Hot-Keys/Command-Keys. The ability to alt/F and have the File
Menu "fly open" and then hit another key to select one of the items (shown
underlined in that item).

My question is: Do you know of any Mac implementation of this Menu Access? I
realize that, in most instances, the Command-Keys, particularly with the option
or control as secondary/tertiary combinations are, in many instances, better; but
not for the person who needs to "browse" the Menu Contents from the Key Board.

I haven't checked out MacOS 9 yet, except VERY superficially; is it possible that
this has been incorporated in the new OS or that it is to be a part of OS X?

Just checking on a slow late Saturday afternoon.
