Tree Structure - Keyboard Traversal

    Got a question for some of the more web savvy guys out there, or
    people who know about web standards.

    We've got a tree-like structure in one of our apps, this is a web-
    based application, off the intranet at work. Anyway, we got this tree
    and we've got some keyboard accessibility. Mainly, you can traverse
    the tree using the TAB key and shift-TAB to go up. Pressing ENTER
    opens a tree/node, and ENTER again closes. We also have a menu, that
    normally you would access using the mouse (right-click). This menu
    should be able to pop-up anywhere in the tree at any context (parent,
    child, grandchild, etc).

    What would be an appropriate key to assign this to?

    Currently we've assigned the ESC key, but it doesn't seem very
    intuitive to me. ESC to me, has always been associated with exiting
    or cancelling something. Any thoughts?
