This shows how problematic it is to use alt keys for functionality
other than menu shortcuts. I customised my English Word 2003 to have
an Exit menu (with "x" as the shortcut key), and I found that if I
press Alt+x (holding both keys at the same time) I get the
Unicode-to-hex conversion, but if I press and release Alt (which
highlights the menu) then press "x", it activates the Exit menu.
