shortcuts: hit alt+s to submit/post or alt+p to preview don't work using Apple

shortcuts: hit alt+s to submit/post or alt+p to preview don't work if you are using Apple OS, in my case OS 10.6.3
Just as easy to hit "Post"

They don't work in Firefox 4.0.1 on Ubuntu, either. Alt+S opens the History menu, and Alt+P does nothing.

Let's keep this short: could someone post if they find a OS/browser combination on which they DO work!

Why not just remove the shortcuts if they don't work ?
alt+s Saves page, and alt+p Prints page in Mac OS

The shortcuts *do* work using IE9, Safari 4.0.4 and Chrome 6.0.472.63 on a Windows XP SP3 machine. I'd imagine other variants of these browsers will probably be OK too?
That leaves the question, do we remove the line of text that refers to these shortcuts, modify it, or leave it as it is?

In SMF 2.0 final (released a couple of weeks ago) it has changed to:
Quote
shortcuts: hit shift+alt+s to submit/post or shift+alt+p to preview

I wonder why!
