When I run revert-buffer in emacs it says:

You can run the command `revert-buffer' with s-u

I've never seen any keybinding beginning with s- before. What key is that?

My emacs version is GNU Emacs 23.2.1 (x86_64-apple-darwin, NS apple-appkit-1038.29) of 2010-05-08 on black.local

Update: Now I see why I didn't understand s-u. It is something added by aquaemacs. The first thing I did after installing aquaemacs was (setq mac-command-modifier 'meta) to make it work the way I expect.

It's the Super Key, similar to Meta. More information in this StackOverflow answer.

By default, Emac's super key is bound to apple's Command key on for emacs built with the NS or NextStep option. At least that was the case on my copy. –  Shannon Severance Oct 30 '10 at 0:10
