Comment If a specific browser is going to be used, and you are able to accept the use of a plug-in, we can do something that will integrate the function keys...this does change the user interface so that function keys normally used for browser functionality will no longer work when a Screensurfer page is being displayed...

This also requires the user accept and integrate the plug-in in order to obtain the effects you are requesting.

One thing you may consider is the use of ctrl-key combinations as accelerators on buttons (like alt-u for page up, and alt-d for page down). This can then be easily integrated as Javascript event handlers in dynamic html.
