Backspace's unicode is 8 and delete's is 46. You need to check for those and allow them.

You can also make your code shorter and easier on the check for alphabetic characters by using regular expressions:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. alphacheck = /[a-zA-Z]/
  2. return !alphacheck.test(keycode)
though you would add in checks for backspace and delete too.
