Because I pretty much just do whatever Hanselman tells me to do, I was trying to get some keyboard shortcuts set up on my website.
While testing with Damien Edwards KeyTips I could get the keyboard commands to work, but the popup would not display. It is a complex site, lots of css, ajax loaded objects, etc.
Long story, short, I needed to set the z-index in the .KeyTips__popup class to be higher than the surrounding elements.
