Can Choice components respond to keyboard input like HTML Choice components?

    Users expect Choice components to respond to keyboard input similarly to
    HTML Choice components. This keyboard-responsiveness is not coded into
    standard Java Choice components. One would expect that adding appropriate
    listeners and events could produce the HTML-like functionality, but this
    does not appear to work.

    At http://segal.org/java/ChoiceKey2/index.html is a small working applet
    with full source code to demonstrate this problem. The desired behavior
    occurs with neither the Sun JVM nor the Microsoft JVM; each departs from
    user expectations in different ways.

    Is there some way to do this properly in Java 1.1 (without Swing) or is this
    a limitation of dealing with native components that can't be overcome in
    this environment?
