           Summary: Add default button option/attribute for forms

Please consider adding a default button option/attribute for forms.  I believe
this would simplify a lot of form interaction for users of assistive technology
and users who rely off of the keyboard alone.  Currently different browsers
handle this differently and there is no specific method for assigning which
button will be activated when enter is pressed in a form field other than a
button that works across browsers.
