Greetings. As far as I know - lynx don't care about case. Most items
in the switch () are of the form:

case 'A':
case 'a': blah...

So, both "V" and "Shift-V" bring it up. Do you want something different?

Take care.

P.S. BTW, I hate popups. If I want to use Netscape... I will. As
you said, lists in forms are already a pain.
