They look good, but we should standardise a format for describing key
presses, e.g. should it be capitalised, italics, quoted, etc? My
preference would be for capitalised + italics. I definately wouldn't
lowercase them. Similarly menu paths -- the forward slash is a good
idea, but italicising would help to separate the menu names from the
surrounding text, especially when they contain spaces. My preference
would be italicised names separated by non-italicised arrows.

BTW, as you've mentioned templates, I wonder how hard it would be to
support templates with multiple tabbable fields like GEdit and VS2005
have? A tooltip notifying the user that they can press "Tab" to expand
the template would be cool too.
