In Emacs, it is
Help/Describe/Describe Key or Mouse Operation
and the menu entry has a tooltip
"Display documentation of a command bound to a key, a click, or a menu-item"
Since Emacs had wagonloads of usability and menu entry fights in the
last few years on its developer list, it might make sense for someone to
do an entry for entry comparison and see whether some of what Emacs
ended up with might be an improvement for XEmacs.
