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.
Note that this information pertains to the website, not to the PCC2 Web application. PCC2 Web has its own keymaps, modeled after the desktop application.
These keys are available on every screen of the website.
