Description

Name: wj18071			Date: 10/25/99


The feature makes it possible for developers to add mnemonics
to the tabs of pages contained in a JTabbedPane. This is a 
feature request of many in the development community, it's 
corresponding bugid is 4200562.

It allows the user to navigate directly to a tabbed page simply 
by pressing Alt+the mnemonic character simultaneously. 

It's more direct than the current solutions which follow. 
Activating a mnemonic is well understood by users and the user 
need only "look" at the UI to know what to do as opposed to the 
following methods which require remembering non-obvious key 
sequences or greatly reduced navigation efficiency.
	First way - the current fastest way requires a 
	Control+up arrow then arrow key navigation to the 
	desired tab. 

	Second way - If the user forgets this non-obvious 
	method they must tab though all active components 
	contained in the tabbed page until focus is given to 
	the tab then arrow keys are used to move to the 
	desired tab.
