how to go to the next field in form even if the user presses enter or the tab button

Hi all,
I have only been looking at php and html for the past week so i am preety new at these stuff. I made a form with some text boxes to get user input however, if i press enter it doesnt move focus from one textbox to another.Instead, it resets the page as if it is submitting it or something. I have a submit button and a reset button

Can someone please help me

Good to handle this at HTML forum. So I'll move it there from Php forum. Thanks.

Another name for "return" is "enter". When you hit 'enter' the submit button is activated. Look into "tabindex" attribute for your tab issue.
