Indeed, nice.

Do you mean the A4/letter drop down lists?

I don't see what you mean.

Another remark: the different buttons can be reached (i.e. have focus)
with the TAB key but:

- the order is a bit strange,
- none of them is "clicked" when they have the focus and the RET key is
- when the drop down lists have the focus, nothing special is displayed
  (unlike the buttons which have a dotted box),
- when the checkboxes have the focus, a zero width dotted box is
  displayed at their right side.
