Open Bookmark in Bookmark Screen in Safari?

What keystroke do I use to open the selected bookmark in Safari's Bookmarks screen?

You're in Safari's Bookmarks screen. You have a bookmark selected. You hit the Return key, and it prompts you for a new name. You hit Command-O and you're presented with an Open File dialog. Is there a way, using the keyboard and not using anything non-native to Safari (i.e., I know I could do something roundabout in Quicksilver) to open the selected bookmark in these circumstances?

Select a bookmark and hit the space bar.

Second the space bar. Works every time, unless I'm missing something.

OOF! grumble, grumble...

Space bar it is. Now why wouldn't they put that in the shortcuts I just provided?

d'oh, sorry, i missed the "keyboard" specification in the question.

The spacebar is kind of the default "do the default action with the currently highlighted GUI element" keyboard shortcut in OS X, so it's possible that your shortcut list is only for the Safari-specific shortcut keys.
