Modify Internet Explorer's keyboard shortcuts Apps
Pierre Igot figured out how to modify Internet Explorer's menu shortcut keys, and wrote up a how-to in this thread on the MacFixIt forums.

Pierre's method involves modifying the Localized.rsrc file, which consists of binary data used by the application. Note that his method can be expanded to modify nearly any application by doing the same thing - editing the Localized.rsrc file for the application in question. Be careful, however, as these are binary files. They look like gibberish (for the most part) in your editor, and if you change the length of the file, it may not run when you're done. Work on a copy of the application, just to be safe!

If you'd like to modify IE's menu shortcuts, head over to MacFixIt for the scoop!

you can also do this the old and perhaps easier way, in resedit/resorcerer. you'll have to open the package contents (ctrl click>show package contents) goto the localised resource in resources>englishIproj>localised.rsrc and convert it with quickconvert, then open it in resedit and under MENU you'll find two 'window' resources, open them and change your shorcuts.
DONT FORGET TO CONVERT THE RESOURCE BACK WITK QUICKCONVERT AFTER.

if you like messing then this is your link:
