Appendix A. Keyboard Event Character Values

Keyboard events in recent browsers provide information about the keys and, where applicable, about the characters corresponding to the keys. Character values may be read from the onkeypress event. The following table reveals the codes for characters in the lower ASCII character set. Some of these codes are for action keys (such as Backspace and Tab), whose character values are also in this range:
