Initial Description
This is a pretty standard jQuery method to listen for the enter key and simply "click" the button.  However, if you are using a LinkButton this code will not work.  The reason for this is that a LinkButton is rendered to the browser as an Anchor tag with a href property that contains a javascript action to trigger the postback.  Click does nothing on the button as there is nothing for it to complete.
