    Hi,

    Does anybody know why doesn't onkeypress catch up/down arrow keys
    while it catches left/right arrows? My only supposition is that up/
    down keys are used for moving between form elements, anyway does
    anybody know any solution to this problem?

    Thanks,
    Pazabo

    The why is impossible to answr since, in IE7 at least,
    not one of the arrow keys returns anything:

    Try IE:

    <body onkeypress='this.innerHTML=event.keyCode'>
