keydown returns the "raw" key in event.which. Depending on the keyboard
layout, this may not be what is wanted. For example, on a German
keyboard, Shift+7 has to be pressed to get a slash. However, event.which

This change refactors the hotkey support to make use of keypress events
whenever possible. This will make hotkeys work regardless of the user's
keyboard layout. Escape and arrow keys are still handled via keydown
