This may be a total ass backwards way of doing things, but it works  
for me, and works well in all applications so have more than just  
value in tm.

Most keyboard shortcuts have a menu item.  I just press command- 
shift-? which will bring up Apple Help Search.  Type in a word and it  
will highlight and expand the menu.  You get to see where it is, what  
category it is in, and the keyboard shortcut.

For me, this is the best way to learn it, since I learn where it  
lives, plus the keyboard command. It sometimes becomes like a  
spotlight to keyboard commands for me.  Some I will decide to  
memorize, others I do not use enough, but now I have this global  
keyboard shortcut to it, that I can get it sans a mouse, and works in  
more than one place.
