I use IE6.

My href link works. But, the accesskey does not work. I pressed ALT + key, Shift + key, and Ctrl + key. No response at all.

Alt + key does not work. Alt + key brings up a menu: New, Open..., Edit with Microsoft Office Word, Save, Save As..., Page Setup, Print..., Print Preview..., Send, Import and Export..., Properties, Close.

Alt + key does not bring up the HTML page that is provided in the link. However my link works by mouse clicks. My link does not work by using the key.

well the code works for me. Have someone else test it on another computer and see if it is just your browser.

I use IE6 as stated in the original thread.

What could cause the access key to fail in the browser of certain PCs?

I found that the Alt+Key only brings the link into focus. I have to press the keyboard "Enter" to bring up the linked page.

Is Alt+Key and then Enter normal for the access key feature?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
