Hi Rich, Till
I'm not sure if switching to ALT is the best solution. The users should
learn that web-apps behave the same as regular desktop apps do and the
selection thing with shift/ctrl is a quasi standard. We should not break
this as come up with something different again.
Also the IE7 menubar toggeling can be annoying and will surely cause
another post here or a bug ticket. IMO we should keep the ctrl-behavior and
either remove the link on the subject again (this was requested to improve
the usability for handicapped people and to allow "open in new tab") or we
wait and hope that IE7 will allow us to cancel the click-event one day as
other browsers do.
