LQ shortcuts


I recently discovered that when I'm writing a post I can press Ctrl-I for italic, Ctrl-U for underline and Ctrl-B for bold. Why not add a shortcut for CODE and QUOTE tags? It should be very handy. Thanks.

That doesn't work for me in Konqueror 3.5.8:
Code:
        Your browser   Konqueror 3.5.8      
Ctrl-I for italic      Document Information
Ctrl-U for underline   View Source
Ctrl-B for bold        Bookmark  

.
What browser are you using, & do you generally use the "Post Reply" button or the "Quick Reply" dialog box?


BTW & FWIW, when I -- in Konqueror 3.5.8 -- press & release the Ctrl key, it tags 36, probably the 1st 36, links w/ the numerals & the letters. Some examples:
Ctrl, Q - Spell Check
Ctrl, R - Preview Post
Ctrl, S - Submit Reply
Ctrl, P - tag post w/ "Thumbs up" icon
Ctrl, A - go to "Title:" dialog box
So right now I am going to do a Ctrl (release) Q & Spell Check this post. . . .

I'm using Firefox 3.0.10 and usually post in Quick Reply. I tried Konqueror 3.5.10 and indeed it does not work. It should not be a problem of shortcuts, because the same are valid in Firefox: if I do Ctrl-U from outside the editor box it pops-up the page source, the same as Konqueror.

It would most certainly be useful to have shortcuts for quote and code - especially code.
