                      - In a form text input field,
                        CTRL-V prompts for a key command (allows
                        escaping from the field).

                        Note that on most UNIX hosts, CTRL-V is bound
                        via stty to the lnext (literal-next) code but
                        the exact behavior of that is implementation
                        specific.  On Solaris you must type CTRL-V
                        twice to use it, since it quotes the following
                        keystroke.

       CTRL-U         - Inside text input line or field,
                        erase input line (more input line commands)
                      - Outside of text input or field,
                        undo returning to previous topic.

                        or the
                          Select option (or page) number:
