PeekMessage and accelerator keys

I'm using the following, and it works fine for the mouse and its buttons.  But when I press an accelerator key, nothing happens.  What do I need to add?

MSG msg;
while (::PeekMessage(&msg,NULL,0,0,PM_REMOVE)) {
         TranslateMessage(&msg);
         DispatchMessage(&msg);
}

You usually would use 'TranslateAccelerator()' (http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/winui/hh/winui/keybacel_25o2.asp) before calling 'TranslateMessage()' - see e.g. http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q74/0/42.ASP ('HOWTO: How to Use PeekMessage() Correctly in Windows'):

void CALLBACK MyMessagePump(LPMSG lpmsg)
{
   if(!TranslateAccelerator(hWnd, hAccel, lpsmg))
      {
         TranslateMessage(lpsmg);
         DispatchMessage(lpmsg);
      }
}

For aq MDI app, you'd use 'TranslateMDISysAccel()' instead.
