Enhancement suggestion: enable HTML "kbd" tags

On the Q&A Askbot site I most regularly contribute to, I sometimes indicate keyboard input by means of the back-ticks to get the monospace font, e.g. Esc, F1, etc. However, this is the "code" markup, and is the same style as $foo = bar('baz');. It works as a "fudge", but having code and kbd visually distinct would be preferable.

I have noticed that another Q&A implementation gives both code and "kbd" options, with distinct styling. The "kbd" style simply uses the standard HTML tags (with a bit of CSS applied, of course!).

It struck me that this would be a simple but useful enhancement for Askbot, too, so note it here as a suggestion.
