I want to be able to remap keys for specific applications so that those keys can execute macros. I don't want the remap to be global. What are the best programs for this?

What applications? What OS? –  ephilip Dec 27 '09 at 20:02

You can use AutoHotkey to make context-sensitive hotkeys that will work only if a certain window is active (so it will not work globally):

#IfWinActive Reminders ahk_class #32770  ; The "reminders" window in Outlook.
Enter::Send !o  ; Have an "Enter" keystroke open the selected reminder
