I looked into it and couldn't get it to work for NN 4.7.  It would report keys like control y, it will detect the control key and the y key, however if you press something like control h, control d, control w, etc which are actions defined in the browser the web page never even gets them.  The browser eats up the event and doesn't pass it on:(

Write a javascript code, which captured the CTRL+D keystroke, and does nothing.

I guess you'd better refer this one to the javascript area. I'm pretty sure it can be done in javascript, and quite easy.

It works fine with IE, but since IE doesn't add a bookmark with ctrl-d I guess that's kind of useless...

Want to see my code?  OK, here it is (cross browser)

<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">
<!--
if (document.layers)
 document.captureEvents(Event.KEYDOWN);
document.onkeydown = handler;

function handler(e)
{if (document.layers)
  {i = e.which;
   ctrl = (e.modifiers & Event.CONTROL_MASK)
   if ((i != 0) && ctrl) // don't know what the key code is since I can't seem to get it!
    {alert(i+" + control")
     return false;
    }
   else
    return true;
  }
 else if (document.all)
  {ctrl = event.ctrlKey;
   i = event.keyCode;
   if (i == 68 && ctrl)
    {alert("control d")
      return false;
    }
  else
   return true;
  }
}
//  -->
</script>


I tried with keypress and keydown, still no luck with NN 4.7

Really?  It wasn't doing a thing on my computer.  I don't use IE much so I'm unfamiliar with the different versions.  I'm using IE 5.0 on Win98.
