One of the things i like about mathematica are the shortcuts esc-rho- esc for the symbol rho, etc. I'd really like some shortcuts for a) tagging cells, b) and inserting references. I find that having to use the mouse to tag a cell, and then use the mouse to insert an equation reference is a real pain. Do you know how that could be done John?
