    The problem is computing is in a real mess these days - alot of things need sorting out and simplifying. Javascript is not perfect and that CSS stuff is even worse [[/*\\*]wtf!]]

    It makes me quite cross because simple things end up being difficult because too many stupid people have been involved in setting up how this all works. If I'd gotten into this years ago I could have straightened a few things out

    I think men have basically made this all over complicated to keep themselves in jobs so women cant get the hang of it.

    I suggest reading this page to provide some insight into keycodes.

    Mmm. JavaScript, and its creator(s), are not really to blame: it's the browser wars!

    Interesting reading
    "obnoxious problems, incompatibility, no standard ..."
    REALLY?
    I don't see why its got so complicated over the last 10 years because Inkey$ worked ok on my brothers Spectrum in the late 80's. Why have we gone backwards? Ive always felt Microsoft made things more complicated than they need to be, they should have kept Sir Clive at the helm of operating systems.

    I need to volunteer myself on to the committee that decide all these things because it is in a terrible mess right now - needs a big sort out.
