Thanks for the info!  I'm using a Toshiba Sattelite
laptop and the "Fn" key is between the left Ctrl
and Alt and there isn't a right Ctrl.  "Fn" doesn't
work for zooming, but F1 works fine.  I have to
make sure I don't have focus in a text area because
F1 inserts some weird charecter, but other than
that this works perfectly.  Again thanks.

Side note, the documentation mentions that 
"Alt-Shift" works as a substitute for the Meta
key, but that doesn't work for me.  Perhaps
it should be updated to include F1.
