Below is a quick demonstration on a new Keyboard nav handler for the Ext JS Menu system that I’m working on. I would like any and all opinions.

Great plugin Jay. I think your suggestion for using the char index for choosing the shortcut key is good, if it would work out the character position and apply the formatting (underline) automatically then it would make the implementation even easier.

Thanks for the feedback. It's going to be using regex. How to formulate that is going to be difficult because of special characters, etc.

I'm also working on a 'propagation' mechansim, where you specify the plugin on the *root* menu item and it will propagate to all sub menus automagically :)

Very nice! How do you plan on handling menus with sub-items? Like in FF you have View: Toolbars: etc...

Will you need a separate handler for each? Can this be built in?

Thanks, Marty
