Hi Experts, I have the code as below. I had been using this, since asp:panels were not working so I tried this and still cant get it to work. Can anybody point me in the right direction.
'function in root
function FireDefaultButton(event, target) {
    // srcElement is for IE
    var element = event.target || event.srcElement;

    if (13 == event.keyCode && !(element && "textarea" == element.tagName.toLowerCase())) {
        var defaultButton;
        defaultButton = document.getElementById(target);

        if (defaultButton && "undefined" != typeof defaultButton.click) {
            event.cancelBubble = true;
            if (event.stopPropagation)
            return false;
    return true;

Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
   ClientScript.RegisterClientScriptInclude("FixFireDefault", "FireDefaultButtonFix.js")
End Sub

<div onkeypress="return FireDefaultButton(event, '<%= LinkButton1.ClientID %>')">
