I suppose using
Space and Backspace might be some kind of email keyboard standard but
it's news to me.
Not so much an email standard as a Unix convention, used all over the
place (try the "less" command for example). Comes from when many
keyboards didn't have PageUp, PageDown and so on. Some of them didn't
even have arrows! Generally speaking, Space means "move forward one
unit" and Backspace is "move back one unit", where a unit can be a page,
a screenfull, a character, etc. according to context.
