Disabling the Enter Key on a Web Browser

Are users complaining that every time they click the 'Enter' key on the keyboard, it automatically submits a form.

Use this short JavaScript function to disable the enter key on the Web.

var NS = (window.Event) ? 1 : 0;

function checkKey(e) {
  var code = (NS) ? e.which : event.keyCode;
  if (code == "13"){
	return false; }

document.onkeypress = checkKey;
