THere are two tables.
The first table you want to navigate down the second column. Once you select a category of shortcut keys, you can peruse the table of keys. This perusal is not as good in the current Lion as it was in Snow Leopard, but it is still functional.
The second table has two columns the first is a check box indicating if the shortcut is enabled. The second column has two areas and you have to interact to see the second. The first area is the description of the shortcut and the second is the key-stroke to perform. I just had difficulty with (voice-over on) creating a keyboard shortcut for the service called "Edit selection in textedit".
To map functions that are in menus like Open, close, quit ... You need to have applications selected in the first table. Then you enter the exact characters from the menu item you want to shortcut and finally associate a keystroke with that function.
best of luck.
> Slight experimentation with the keyboard shortcut dialog in Prefs shows it to be loaded with Images and things which make it a bit hard for me to parse right away. Not going so far as to say it's inaccessible, but the instructions of:

> followed by a table mostly populated with images, makes me very confused. I cannot find an obvious way to bind the keys which I find are labeled F13, F14 and F15 respectively, to any commands for sleep, eject, turn off, etc. I thought it'd be neat to have one of them be an Eject key, say F13, have one of them be an Eject key (although this can be done with Command E as well), say F14, and maybe an auto-destruct on F15--really, I hadn't decided on them.
