Another fellow here must modify an application. On the web page, pressing
the enter key causes the form to submit. What users want is to remove enter
key functionality from within a textarea and cause the enter key to submit
the form, AND cause the F6 key to do what the enter key used to do inside
the text area. The idea I suggested is to trap keystrokes in the text area,
If the enter key is pressed, do the submit method. If F6 is pressed, disable
the enter key test then emulate an enter key by creating an event object.
The textarea should then insert a new line as if the enter key was pressed.
would that be the right approach and has anyone done something similar.

If it _can_ be done (-I think it can,) comp.lang.javascript would be the
best place to find out how.
