Here is a working example for IE:

<HTML>
<HEAD>
<SCRIPT language="javascript">
 function Login()
 {
    alert(0);
    return false;
 }
</SCRIPT>
</HEAD>

<BODY>
<FORM name="myform" action="javascript:alert('Submitted');" >

  <input type="text" name="userName" />
  <input type="text" name="password" onkeyup="if(event.keyCode==13)this.form.submit();" />
  <input type="button" value="Login" onClick="Login()" />

</FORM>
</BODY>
</HTML>

if the user tabs to the button, and presses enter it will "click it" and do your Login function

oops, but my Login function is just a stub -- obviously, you should replace it with your own.  The key is in the onkeyup event handler.  I am working on a NS version too...

This one should work in NS too:

 <input type="text" name="password" onkeyup="var event = e?e:event; if(event.keyCode==13)this.form.submit();" />
