Hi.  Is there a way to turn off the mediawiki interpretation of various 
control-key sequences?

I ask because I am a lifelong Emacs user, and because my Mac OSX system 
is set up to obey many emacs navigation commands.  So, when I'm 
entering content, I am very likely to type
	control-E	to go to the start of a line
	control-P to go up one line
and, of course, this leads to all sorts of confusion while editing wiki 

Is there a flag I can set, to prevent the mediawiki site from 
interpreting these control-key sequences?
