HotKey to run script in Safari

I'm trying to write a little applescript or MAC automater action that I can trigger with a hot key.

The html code for the website is below and in the area "<input name="EmployeeNumber" type="text" size=8>"

I need the program to enter 4-digits then hit "enter."

I'm on a MAC with Snow Leopard usually running Safari. Thanks.


<form name="SignIn" method="post" action="http://fmweb/.....xsl">
    <p>
        <input type="hidden" name="-script" value="SetOfficeLocator" />
        <input type="hidden" name="-db" value="TRG%20Check%20In%20Log" />
        <input type="hidden" name="-lay" value="Webcheckin" />
        <input type="hidden" name="-grammar" value="fmresultset" />
        <input type="hidden" name="-encoding" value="UTF-8" />
        <input type="hidden" name="InOut" value="In">
    </p>
    <p>
        <font face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size="2">Enter (optional) from where (e.g.,
            client meeting, doctor, lunch).</font>
        <input name="Return When" type="text" value="" size="25">
        <br>
    </p>
    <p>
        <font face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size="2">Please enter your employee number</font>
        <input name="EmployeeNumber" type="text" size="8">
        <font face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size="2">&nbsp;then <font color="#FF0000">
            click-&gt;</font></font>
        <input type="submit" name="-new" value="Sign In" />
        <br>
    </p>
    </form>

try this :
<script>
window.onload = function() {
    document.getElementsByName("EmployeeNumber")[0].value = "1234"; // 4 digits
    document.forms[0].submit(); // ENTER KEY
}
</script>

Thanks for the info. This will execute on page load right? Is there a way to call this with a hotkey such as alt z or something? Thanks.

document.onkeydown = function(e) {
    if(window.event) {
        var ctrlPressed = window.event.ctrlKey;
        var key = window.event.keyCode;    
    }
    else {
        var ctrlPressed = e.ctrlKey;
        var key = e.whiche;    
        
    }
    if( key == 90 && ctrlPressed) {
        document.getElementsByName("EmployeeNumber")[0].value = "1234"; // 4 digits
