If you are logged in all top-navigation links have an accesskey... No, not all!
The 'preferences'-link doesn't have one. Why? Please include there also an
accesskey. Thank you.

The current code:
<li id="pt-userpage" class="active"><a title="My user page [alt-.]"
accesskey="." href="/wiki/xxx">xxx</a></li>
<li id="pt-mytalk"><a title="My talk page [alt-n]" accesskey="n"
href="/wiki/xxx">My talk</a></li>
<li title="My preferences" id="pt-preferences"><a
<li id="pt-watchlist"><a title="The list of pages you're monitoring for changes.
[alt-l]" accesskey="l" href="/wiki/Spezial:Watchlist">My watchlist</a></li>
<li id="pt-mycontris"><a title="List of my contributions [alt-y]" accesskey="y"
href="/wiki/Spezial:Contributions/xxx">My contributions</a></li>
<li id="pt-logout"><a title="Log out [alt-o]" accesskey="o"
href="/w/index.php?title=Spezial:Userlogout&amp;returnto=xxx">Log out</a></li>

Hi Rob. What about 'alt-k'? Or is this one already taken somewhere?

Accesskey ',' added with r25080.

Reverted in r25475.

I don't see any real need for an access key for a rarely-used function like prefs here, and picking ones that already interfere with other keyboard shortcuts kinda sucks. :)

Resolving WONTFIX.

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
