    Somewhat reluctantly, I'd have to agree with this.  Using control characters
    isn't too bad an alternative, but I would still prefer the single keystroke,
    while recognizing that one cannot always have everything ...
    One thing that hasn't been suggested is to use the keypad keys, a la the way
    some text editors work.
    So the keypad "0" key could be NEXT, for example, and the other keypad keys
    would perform other designated functions.
