Thanks for that URL, it's very interesting.

I've added


to the file. This gives Ctl-u, Opt-Ctl-u and Shft-Ctl-u as  
Capitalize, lowercase and UPPERCASE the word (the cursor must be in  
the word) and also adds Opt-v to pageup and vertically center the  
cursor (much as Ctl-v already does pagedown and vertically center the  
cursor) like emacs.

Good Luck,
