Using Notes 'ESC' Functionality in Web

We all are used to using the "Escape" button while saving a document in Notes. In order to get the same functionality for Web-enabled forms, I have used JavaScript. One can call in another JavaScript function instead of an alert to achieve the "SAVE" functionality.

This should go in the "$$HTMLHead" field (text-computed) hidden while reading/editing:

"<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript"> var key = new Array(); key['27'] = "Do You Want to Save Your Changes"; function getKey(keyStroke) { isNetscape=(document.layers); eventChooser = (isNetscape) ? keyStroke.which : event.keyCode; which =String.fromCharCode(eventChooser).toLowerCase(); for (var i in key) if (eventChooser == i) if(confirm(key[i])) { alert('Wow It worked');} else { alert('No it didnt'); } } document.onkeypress = getKey; </script>"
