This post is more than 18 months old. Since technology changes to rapidly, this content may be out of date (but that's not always the case). Please remember to verify any technical or programming information with the current release.

I just want to make a micro blog here. Just a tiny lil blog.

Internet Explorer Does Not Submit Form on Enter

Correct! Instead, I load my page with this jquery

$('input').keydown(function(e) {
  if (e.keyCode == 13) {
    $(this).parents('form').submit();
    return false;
  }
});

Button Element Not Submitting in Internet Explorer

Correct! Mainly because I was lazy.

But in FireFox works fine for a submit.

In IE - don’t forget to add type="submit"

<button>Works in FF</button>
<button type="submit">Works and is probably what you SHOULD do</button>

That is all.
