Helps, but not all the time. Is it necessary for every user to try all 
combinations of PageDown, PageDn, PgDn, PAGEDOWN, etc to find the exact 
string myth expects?

A list of these correspondences would be nice. Remember, the list linked 
above is for a keyboard user, where it's obvious which key is meant. If 
trying to link in Lirc-derived keypresses in a config file, something a 
little more exact is required.
