Make Enter key invoke onchange event

We have an app where we have a textbox where we have an onchange event. Here is the form code:

<input type="password" style="background color: #FF0000;" name="conf" size="10" class="pt9" disabled="true" onChange="chk_text();">

We want it to be such that if the person types text & hit's the ENTER key it will invoke the onchange event. It does that in FireFox.

How can we make it do that in IE?

Inline events are ugly but try this:

onkeypress="var k=event.keyCode||event.which;if(k==13){this.onchange();}"

I'm not clear on where the onkeypress....... goes. Does it go inside the <input type ...> tag?

David S.Commented:
Yes, it would go inside that tag.
