Apart from the "universal" Esc shortcuts, there are UNIX-specific
shortcuts using Ctrl and Meta keys, such as Ctrl+K for deleting
text to the end of line, and Meta+U to make a word upper case.
These are listed on the Quick Reference Card that comes with FM,
and on MicroType's website:

Since UNIX FM has built-in macro recording, you can define your
own shortcuts, even the Ctrl ones you're used to from Windows.
However, doing so will override any standard Ctrl shortcuts
that use the same keys, e.g. Ctrl+S means Search on UNIX.

Finally, SUN keyboards come with a set of function keys that
work in FM: Cut, Copy, Paste, Undo, Find, etc.
