    what i mean is is it possible to cancel a postback if the visitor
    presses the enter key while no text box control, check box control ,
    etc ... has the focus

    here is the script i'm using

    function document.onkeydown()

    if(event.keyCode ==13){
    event.cancel =true;


    this still posts back to the server

    use event.returnValue = false. note the 'V' caps.
