I noticed the Forms section of the HTML 5 spec has a status of "last call
for comments" - I wish to make one additional comment.  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.

 

Best Regards,
