Visual display of shortcuts

The following entry in your user CSS file (e.g., User:Example/monobook.css) will display access keys before links that have them.

This does not work in Internet Explorer, since it doesn't support the :before CSS selector. In Safari, this will not work on initially loading a page, but will show up when you mouse-over the menus, go back to a page, or press Home, End, Page Up, or Page Down.

a[accesskey]:before {
    content: " " attr(accesskey) " ";
    text-transform: uppercase;
    white-space: pre;
    border: thin solid;
    font-family: sans-serif;
    text-decoration: underline overline;
    margin-right: 0.5ex;
