Can't use stylesheet switcher from keyboard
There is no way to access Firebird's stylesheet switcher using the keyboard. It's not in menus or the tab order, and it doesn't have a keyboard shortcut.
Taking QA and reassigning to Hyatt, since this was added by him.

Any keyboard shortcut I can think of wouldn't be obvious (and difficult for the user to know unless it's displayed on the menu). As for the tab order, I don't know of any application that allows you to tab down to the status bar -- it's usually there just to indicate something (and provide a handy shortcut for mouse users), then you can go thorough the menus to access the information. So: the obvious solution would be to bring back "View"|"Alternate Stylesheet" cascaded menu item.
IMHO it would be better to have a "view" | "With alternative style" menu. I think that no simple user will ever understand what is a stylesheet.
If this is going to stay in for the release, do we need to add minimal keyboard accessibility? (I vote for removal).
Taking bug and aiming for 1.0 localization freeze.
