I'd like some Wordpress functionality, please?

I want 2 things from my self-hosted Wordpress blog - to be able to save a published post I'm editing with a keyboard shortcut, and to have a "reply" button on the comments. How can I get these things?

Keyboard shortcuts: I can use the shift+alt+p shortcut to publish a post. But I often edit a post later on, then have to save it. Is there a shortcut that will let me save the posting as opposed to publishing it? On Googling, I've found that I can edit a .js file to edit existing keyboard shortcuts, but I've no idea what to put in it. Is there a plugin that will let me do this instead? Or some other way of achieving it (such as a Greasemonkey script)?

Reply button: You know how on Lifehacker they have the reply feature where you can reply to a specific person, and their name will appear as @ username? See here for an example. Can I get a plugin that will allow me to do that, or, again, a greasemonkey script?

Thank you to anyone who can help.

Well you might be able to use a greasemonkey script, but that wouldn't do your other commenters much good. I didn't scare up any plugins that do exactly what you want, but there are a couple in the right ballkpark: threaded comments, and comment quoter.

As to save shortcuts, dunno.

My SO suggests, if you haven't already, checking out the plug-in directory at wordpress.org. Good luck.

Comment Quoter looks like it could be very useful, thanks.
