Hi all,

we have a client who was saying that we should also allow the enter key to
check a radio button and not to let that enter key submit the form on
the page. They said that we should be prepared for however a keyboard user
may try to check the button. I explained that spacebar is the standard key
for that and sent the W3C page that talks about it. Has anyone else been
asked to accept the enter key to check a radio button? Is it a reasonable
