quick question - I have an online form that has many fields to fill out and we get a lot of half full forms because folks hit the enter key instead of the tab key to advance to the next field and the form is submitted. Is there away to force a the submit button to only respond to a mouse click?

How about the quick fix of making a field at the bottom of the form a required field?

If you use javascript and use two forms. One that the user fills out (in the form tag use onsubmit=""). Then do a input type = button with an onclick that fires a js function to fill the (second form) a hidden form and submits it. It can be wordy but it works.
