  Running Debian Wheezy with Xfce4 and openbox 3.5.0-7. I'm having

  shortcut to open a terminal 
  and having no joy. Turned up a site with a sample rc.xml file that had
  an entry that did what I want. 
  Pasted it in with no result after a reboot. The entry is:
   <keybind key="A-t">
        <action name="Execute">

That doesn't look right to me. Shouldn't the "action" be more like this?

<action name="Execute"><command><gnome-terminal/command></action>
