Apparently, on IE one could use initKeyboardEvent 
(, and on 
"modern browsers" one should rather use the constructor.
Key/keyboard event handling is such a mess… and synthesizing those events is 
almost useless anyway…
There's an issue about better keyboard event handling, that's been open for 
years. It'd be so time-consuming that it's probably worthless (YMMV)
