How would I create a button, for a one-button palette, that when clicked 
by the mouse, sends the Shift-Enter key combination to the active 
notebook (i.e., not the palette notebook) for the cell in which the 
cursor was positioned in that active notebook?

Explanation: For presentations, I want to be able to use a 
remote-control mouse device that cannot transmit any keystrokes but can 
move the mouse around the screen and transmit a left-click (or 
right-click).  So my thought is to have the sort of button, as a 
sepaately floating palette, that I could click so as to emulate pressing 
Shift-Enter in the target notebook being presented.
