I personally think the whole concept is broken of having letters underlined in 
menu items to denote which key you need to press with alt. And the underlines 
look really ugly - the Macintosh doesn't have them at all and looks much 

Is there really no better way of invoking menu items from the keyboard than by 
using alt + 'a fairly random character' ?
