Thanks.  Good points.  Not really related to my question, but words
to live by, no doubt.

I still don't follow that suggestion.  That prevents all form
submissions.  No wonder you don't recommend it.

Clients seem to have mixed behavior with regard to what will cause a
form submission.  I guess I'll stick with the confirm dialog on
submit.  Annoying, but maybe not as annoying as premature submission.
