Right, but I was trying to come up with a way for the original poster to 
test to see if the user had simply hit "enter" or if they had actually 
hit the "submit" button (not as a test to see if the form was being 
viewed for the first time).  IIRC he was having problems determining 
whether or not the user had hit "enter" or hit the submit button.
