           Summary: no way to select html alternative using keyboard
           Product: kmail
           Version: 1.9.7
          Platform: unspecified
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: messageviewer
        AssignedTo: kdepim-bugs kde org
        ReportedBy: jgoerzen complete org

Version:           1.9.7 (using KDE 3.5.7, Debian Package 4:3.5.7.dfsg.1-1 (lenny/sid))
Compiler:          Target: i486-linux-gnu
OS:                Linux (i686) release 2.6.18-4-k7

I can find no way to select the HTML alternative in a message containing both text and HTML without using the mouse.

This is both a usability and an accessibility issue.

No way is documented in the manual.  I also tried Google and the shortcuts configuration, and found nothing relevant either place.

It is also unclear how to "click" the render HTML link with only the keyboard on a pure HTML document.
