Javascript Cancel OnKeyPress prob on Safari - Mac Applications & Software

Hi, I want to cancel a certain key in JavaScript. To do so, I catch the event in OnKeyPress and cancel the default: <head> .... function f(evt) { var evt = (evt) ? evt : ((window.event) ? window.event : "") ... evt.returnValue = false; // IE evt.preventDefault(); // dom 2 (also tried without this here) return false; // netscape } .... <body> .... <TEXTAREA Name=demoTextarea ROWS=10 COLS=50 OnKeyPress="f(event)"> </TEXTAREA> IE works fine. Safari will not cancel the key. I also checked to see if the textArea value already had received the key before this handler. It had not. Any ideas? ...

    Default Javascript Cancel OnKeyPress prob on Safari

    Hi,
    I want to cancel a certain key in JavaScript.
    To do so, I catch the event in OnKeyPress and cancel the default:

    <head>
    ....
    function f(evt)
    {
    var evt = (evt) ? evt : ((window.event) ? window.event : "")
    ...
    evt.returnValue = false; // IE
    evt.preventDefault(); // dom 2 (also tried without this here)
    return false; // netscape
    }
    ....
    <body>
    ....
    <TEXTAREA Name=demoTextarea ROWS=10 COLS=50 OnKeyPress="f(event)">
    </TEXTAREA>

    IE works fine.
    Safari will not cancel the key.
    I also checked to see if the textArea value already had received the
    key before this handler. It had not.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance,
