word translation support via the overlibmws Support Group.
Use your TAB and Shift-TAB keys
(Ctrl-DownArrow and Ctrl-UpArrow for Opera) or your
mouse to access the form fields and the anchors (text and image links) in this
document. All of the form fields and anchors are associated with
overlibmws tooltip popups. The keyboard-invoked
popups use the onfocus, onblur and
onkeypress events for popup control in a manner homologous to the
use of onmouseover, onmouseout and
onclick by the mouse. When keyboard navigation
imparts focus and a popup to a link or form button, pressing the ENTER
key will activate it. When focus is imparted to a text input field, data can be
entered via the keyboard and the form can be submitted by pressing the
ENTER key, but that key is treated as data (newline)
within the textarea field and you must leave it (e.g., via tabbing or a mouseover)
to submit the form. The keyboard-invoked popup support is important for
ADA-compliant web sites (note some
problems in Gecko-engine browsers). Also check out keyboard
versus mouse-based navigation in
another form-containing overlibmws
