Ah, right. Because Mac OS only uses the Alt key to generate 'odd' characters, 
but we use it for more. It sucks that Apple wired the iBooks so that the 
Alt_R key is a pain to get to. The Enter key on my iBook is in a good place 
(between the spacebar and right alt key)...

Should we just leave it as fn+alt, document it somewhere, and wait for the 
users to come up with a consensus?
