Large parts of PlanetsCentral.com can be controlled with a keyboard.

Keys have been chosen to not interfere with regular browsing. When you look at something that looks like a web page, it can be used like a web page: arrows/Space to scroll, Tab to select links, etc. These rules do not apply to dialogs, which are intended to behave like dialogs.

General Keys

The following keys are used systematically wherever possible.

j,kKeyboard focus (down/up) in a list of games, messages, etc.: Initially, there is no particular keyboard focus. You can use j and k to move down and up, respectively. The focused element will be briefly highlighted with a flashing box. This accesses items on a page (mails, games, etc.) in a quicker fashion than a browser's Tab key would.
h,lSection select (left/right): When keyboard focus is on a section selection list, you can use these keys to select the previous/next section, e.g. previous/next score chart, ship list filter, etc.
EnterEnter: Enter the focused item (mail, game, etc.)
ESCClose dialog
d,DelDelete: Delete the focused item (mail, folder, file, etc.)
xSelect: Select/unselect the focused item (mail, ...). Future operations will apply to all selected items.
