mrtd: Actually 'Enter > Activate' is the spawn of the RISC OS 3 Style Guide, published more than a decade ago. I quote from page 69: "Return - Begin a new line of text in an editor window. In a dialogue box, perform the default action." Also page 49: "The default action should be performed if the user presses Return." To rail against the standard now is pointless.
