Need help on hitting "Enter" key to trigger a button...

Hi,

I'm trying to make the "Enter" key function exactly the same as clicking on the Find button that has an ' OnClientClick="return validateForm()" ' and does a PostBack. In other words, if the user hits the "Enter" key on his keyboard after filling in the zip code, I need the "Enter" key to do exactly as clicking on the "Find" button.

Thanks very much in advance.

<script type="text/javascript" src="/js/jquery-1.2.1.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript">
        // <![CDATA[
        function validateForm() {
            var zipCode = $("input#<%= txtZipCode.ClientID %>").val();
            zipCode = $.trim(zipCode);
            var state = document.getElementById("<%= ddlState.ClientID %>").value;
            var objZip = document.getElementById("<%= txtZipCode.ClientID %>");
            if (zipCode == "" && state == "") {
                alert("Please enter a zip code or select a state!");
                objZip.focus();
                return false;
            }
            if (zipCode != "" && !validateZipCode(zipCode)) {
                alert("Please enter a valid zip code!");
                objZip.focus();
                return false;
            }
            
            return true;
        }
        
        function validateZipCode(v) {
            var regex = /^\d{5}$|^\d{5}-\d{4}$/;
            return regex.test(v);
        }
        // ]]>
    </script>		
 
    <div>
	<form id="form1" runat="server">
        <table border="0" cellpadding="2" style="width:500px">
