But more simple could then be to have a function

   (setq menu-string (add-acc menu-string ?a))

I'm really not sure what the above means. A single global access-key is not going to be much use.

Sorry, I meant it to be used like

  (define-key help-map [nxhtml-report-bug]
    (list 'menu-item
          (add-acc "Report a Bug in nXhtml ..." ?b)

But what does it do?  There is no 'b' in "Report a Bug in nXhtml".

This kind of interface is very bad for internationalization. Although the string may get translated, how would we fix ?b in that case? So for that reason I prefer some special character. \001 as proposed sounds OK to me. It would then be straight forward for the platform specific code to translate it to '&' or '_'.
