Re: double click without mouse on web page

Here is the context in the web app. The user types into a text field and clicks an "Add" button at the right end of the text field. The text that they entered is then displayed in the next form field on the page. This can be done multiple times, thus building a "list" in the second form field. If the user wants to remove an item from the list, they select it and double-click to make it "disappear" from the text box (list). I hope my description is adequate. I'm describing it as a literally see it. I have been unable to make this happen with keyboard only, but then I'm not very keyboard savvy.
