[jawsscripts] Re: Element attribute values.

        Thanks Haden. Finding an available key has to be about the hardest
thing to do. So many good key commands are already in use.

        I'd forgotten about the preference for Hungarian notation  in naming
variables etc. Thanks for that, and for your thoughts about sending the
script into FS.

Léonie.

You may want to put a letter before the variables such as:
String SAttributeValueString and so on.
S for string, I for int and so on. Freedom scientific recommends that you do
this. Also, I would switch the script key to something other than control+l
as that opens the open dialogue. Once tested, you could submit the script to
freedom scientific. If they like it, they will put it in the next release of
jaws.
