Creating Mac Keyboard Shortcuts

TextMate recently released an update that changed one of my favorite keyboard shortcuts. This event reminded me that Mac OS X has provided a nice way to create your own keyboard shortcut key bindings. To create your own keyboard shortcut for an application, you will need to know the exact name given in the application’s menu.
