irt.org FAQ Knowledge Base Q1179

The Enter Key is the default keyboard shortcut for a submit button so try the following:

<script language=JavaScript>

<form method=post name=form_name action=test.pl>
<input type=text size=20>
<input type=text size=20>
<input type=text size=20>
<input type=button value=Submit onClick="submitForm();">

Basically, we are replacing the submit button with a standard button and using JavaScript to submit the form when the button is pressed.

The enter key will still submit the form, but ONLY if the submit button has the focus (i.e. the user has tabbed onto the button).

Unfortunately I think IE 4.0.72 has some problems with using javascript to submit a form.
