Php keystroke analysis client-side

Ste
Hello,
my goal would be implementing some keystroke analysis using php. I'm a
novice in php, so i ask your advice: according to you, is it possible
to log each keystroke client-side even if php is a server-side
language, or shall i use JavaScript and make the client run the
program locally? And, if i can use php to do that, how can i implement
a feature logging keystrokes on the client system?

Thanks,

Stefano

No, absolutely impossible!
or shall i use JavaScript and make the client run the
program locally?
If you do that, don't forget the

<noscript>...</noscript>

tags, if that is somehow necessary for navigating your site.

a feature logging keystrokes on the client system?


You can't.

You'd probably be best off with a Java applet. Maybe Flash, even.

Clearly not...

You would have to.

Using the onkeypress intrinsic event? (HTML4.0.1 sec. 18.2.3). What's this for
anyway; a typing speed counter, or something more insidious?
