Hi Sannyasin,

Actually, the term is correct.
TAB will move you to the next field _unless_ you trap
the 'tabKey' handler in the field script.
RFETURN will simply move you to the next line _unless_
you set this property, and then it will go to the next
This property is interesting for input screens where
you want to avoid people typing multiple lines in one

Hope this cleared it up,
