I agree ""in windows it's standard" is simply not true.
however, it was win311 standard.
what can i say now is
"it's still supported in windows"

while i searching "Java shift insert" at google, i found many page
suggesting shift ins while using it java applet. hmmmm.

I came accrose "CUA" or "Common User Access"
then i search for "CUA common user access" ,
definition given by webpodeia is 

"Short for Common User Access, a set standards for user interfaces 
developed by IBM. CUA is one component of the System Application 
Architecture (SAA) standards introduced in 1987."

so, it's not "Windows standard", may be we can say just:
 "Windows 3.11 support Common User Access."
 "Windows9x still support CUA, but not promoting it."

i came across word 'CUA 91', 'CUA 93' but cant find the actual spec. :(
but i think i found person for involved with it

about the java, i would love to see the docs telling not 
to shift ins.
