Many users don't know the keyboard shortcuts to do common tasks. To solve this we should display keyboard shortcuts in the tooltip when hovering over buttons in toolbars. Whether this is default behavior is open to discussion, but this should definitely be shown when Extended Tips are enabled and when the What's This? help feature is enabled (I believe they are both the same). As an example, let's say a user hovers over the Bold toolbar button. It would then show: Bold (Ctrl+B)

I'm curious - is this behavior used in any other application? If so, can you cite them?

I used to use an older version of Corel PerfectOffice and I believe they had it. Word and Powerpoint 2002 have it (Tools->Customize->Options tab), but Excel does not. The Opera web browser has it by default on some buttons. MS Office 12 will have a new style of keyboard shortcut tips ( http://blogs. msdn.com/jensenh/archive/2005/10/13/480568.aspx ). Also, I would like to say that a table of shortcuts such as this ( http://www. mozilla.org/support/firefox/keyboard ) would come in handy for many users.
