           Summary: WebKit does not allow a button to be themed as
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 526+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: Macintosh
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.5
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Enhancement
          Priority: P3
         Component: Forms
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: phoenix1701 at gmail.com

It would be very valuable to developers writing Web applications (as opposed to
simple pages or fill-in forms) to have the ability to theme a button control
with the "default" (glowy blue in Mac OS X) appearance to indicate that
pressing return will activate that button.  Although the implementation details
are sketchy if the button is set up as the submit button for a form (if there
are multiple forms on the page, should both submit buttons be default at once? 
Only the one whose associated form has keyboard focus? etc) but this should
definitely be available as an attribute (perhaps accesskey="↩") or a CSS
value ("-webkit-appearance: button-default") for developers who wish to
manually associate the button with a return key press in a JavaScript event
handler or similar.
