Adding shortcut key tooltips to the quicktags butt

  • I have a hard time remembering what some of the shortcut keys are to the quicktags buttons in the post editor.
    Sure, there’s a link to a help document, but it’s so inconvenient that you might as well just press the button. (Plus, the help file is quite wrong for 1.0.1. Alt+u is unordered list, not underline; alt+p is next page, not paragraph; link is alt+a, not alt+h; strikeout is not alt+s; close all tags is not alt+c.)
    I modified quicktags.js to display the keyboard shortcuts as button tooltips. Might something like this be added to future versions of WordPress?
    <pre>
    function edShowButton(button, i) {
    var buttonTitle = (typeof(button.access) == “undefined” || button.access == ”)
    ? ”
    : (‘title=”Alt+’ + button.access + ‘”‘);
    if (button.id == ‘ed_img’) {
    document.write(‘<input type=”button” id=”‘ + button.id + ‘” accesskey=”‘ + button.access + ‘” class=”ed_button” onclick=”edInsertImage(edCanvas);” value=”‘ + button.display + ‘” ‘ + buttonTitle + ‘ />’);
    }
    else if (button.id == ‘ed_link’) {
    document.write(‘<input type=”button” id=”‘ + button.id + ‘” accesskey=”‘ + button.access + ‘” class=”ed_button” onclick=”edInsertLink(edCanvas, ‘ + i + ‘);” value=”‘ + button.display + ‘” ‘ + buttonTitle + ‘ />’);
    }
    else {
    document.write(‘<input type=”button” id=”‘ + button.id + ‘” accesskey=”‘ + button.access + ‘” class=”ed_button” onclick=”edInsertTag(edCanvas, ‘ + i + ‘);” value=”‘ + button.display + ‘” ‘ + buttonTitle + ‘ />’);
    }
    }
    </pre>
    Also, I noticed that the “insert” and “delete” tags are assigned the same keyboard shortcut in WP 1.0.1.
