    BUGBUG: If playing in Internet Explorer 7 with tabs… the ctrl-# function to italicize a guess gets nabbed by the browser.  So if you have 4 tabs open, you can’t guess 1,2,3, or 4.

    After poking around a bit more, there is one more caveat.  In the example given (4 tabs open), you can’t guess the numbers 1-4 is almost correct. You can guess the number of the tab displaying the SudokuHelper.

    Evangineer,

    Yep, I bumped into this myself during development and spent a bit of time trying to come up with a scheme that wouldn’t conflict with any of the possible web browsers (no luck). Because I didn’t want to get into Alt vs. Meta key issues and I’d already given Shift over to bolding the givens, Ctrl was all that was left for italicizing guesses without resorting to the F1-F9 function keys (which have their own issues). As you point out, IE7 uses Ctrl+# to switch among web page tabs, so there’s a potential for conflict. The simple workaround I use is to run the Sudoku helper in its own IE window (i.e., without other tabs open). If you or others have suggestions for better key combinations, I’m happy to consider them as well. :)
