1) I had not realized that Schultz had been responsible for the  
current keyboard assignment in TeXShop.

2) I duly acknowledge that in the LaTeX world, shortcuts are probably  
used a lot more than in more mundane applications which creates a  
problem as to what key combination is used for what, given the  
sparsity of convenient combinations, particularly given that not all  
LaTeX users have the same needs.

3) Being behind and having solved the issue of the Command-i and then  
the Command-b for emph and bold in TeXShop---I should have said  
"Having had people on this list solve it for me"---and being a mouse  
freak, I was not particularly thinking of TeXShop and more of  
applications such as the ones I mentioned, Textedit and Intaglio.

4) All of the above notwithstanding, I absolutely and totally agree  
with Schultz in deploring my having used the word "gratuitous". That  
was indeed absolutely and totally ... gratuitous.

Absolutely and totally apologetic regards
