Hope above will help you !!
some accesskeys are reserved by ie.

ALT+D is one of these - you can't use it yourself.

Firefox (superior in every way) has a simple solution - accesskeys are ALT+SHIFT+key

so in Firefox you can have accesskey="D" and active it using ALT+SHIFT+D

but in ie8 you simply can NOT use certain accesskeys yourself
