Most of NoteTab's methods for launching clips require mouse clicks. There is also the "in-context clipbook" whereby you can press the escape key and use keystrokes to select the wanted clip. NoteTab's keyboard shortcuts for Menu commands can be reassigned by customizing your Shortcuts.dat file.
If you want to launch clips using hotkeys like Ctrl+D it can be done using other utilities. This solution integrates with Shortcuts.dat and uses PowerPro: <http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/ntb-clips/files/CustomClipkeysInfo.html> It also includes a Shortcuts.dat reference file showing all of NoteTab's initial keyboard shortcuts.

I prefer keyboard to mouse clicks, but I see one can Shift-F6 into the
clipbook and treat it like a menu.

That's a good Wink, but looks like a complicated procedure. I run
PowerPro already - did a double-take when I saw your name here - and
will keep this technique in mind. Have to check I don't already have
a script with that name in place.
On another matter: my comment about HTML-stripping was a non-problem.
I was trying to strip the whole file. If I just highlit the bit I
wanted before pressing the Go button, it just cleaned up the section
in question. Very convenient.
