How can I define keyboard shortcuts to menu items in Windows?

I would like to know if there is a Windows program that does this:

I want to set a keyboard shortcut to the menu File > New CSS Document in CoffeeCup HTML Editor. The program doesn’t allow custom keyboard shortcuts, and there is none for New CSS Document.

Thanks.

    I wasn't looking for a program to define keyboard shortcuts for a program. I want the keyboard shortcut TO USE THE MENU of a program.

    Yeah, not bad, but still looking for a way to emulate this.

    It doesn't look like there's any way to set custom keyboard shortcuts without a third party application like AutoHotkey. However, you can still use the keyboard to create a new CSS document by pressing "ALT > F > E" one at a time. If you decided to use something like AutoHotkey, you should be able to set this up for something else.

    Hi

    To assign a hot key for an application:
    1) Make a shortcut-link to the application (This will also allow you to start the application with certain parameters)
    2) Place the shortcut-link on desktop or Start-menu (The QuickLaunch-bar will not work)
    3) Right-click the created shortcut-link and select the fan "Shortcut"
    4) Assign the hotkey by giving focus to the edit-field "Shortcut Key", and press the key-combination
    5) Press "Ok"-button
