This section has a list of all entries in ttdpttxt.txt, with the default values, and what they are used for. You should leave the control codes (a backslash followed by two hexadecimal digits, e.g. \7c) alone, they are place holders for numbers, other text strings or colour or font changes. To put a literal backslash, use two backslashes (\\). \00 marks the end of a string.

hotkeylistwin="x !@#$t%1234567890==`\\\00"
List of new hotkeys for the DOS and Windows version. The first four characters are reserved. After this follow six characters which toggle display options, and finally 14 characters for the fourteen construction items in the railway construction menu. If the second character (the first after the "x") is a question mark "?", it will turn on the key code display, meaning that every time you press a key in TTD, it will display what key it thinks that was, so that you can find out what character to use in the hotkey list. Note that the control codes are not placeholders here, but keycodes.
