Im using the event.keyCode so the use can switch between windows (three of them) of the website.
This works fine while in one of the windows, but say Im typing in Word and I hit the key to switch, nothing happens.
Ofcourse, this is because the keys only work in the <body onload> part of the pages, but I was wondering if its possible for the key combination to be used when not focused on one of the windows.
Have you tried....a reset?

Nope, I don't think so, you'll just have to resort to good old <ALT>+<TAB>.

Advice to MySQL users: Get phpMyAdmin and test your queries work there first, take half the hassle out of diagnosis, also check the reserved words list.
