    Hijacking IE's Function Keys in a Web App

      I know this is a bit OT for this forum, but I haven't found the definitive answer elsewhere (or in an archive search).

      We are writing a web-based application running in a 'dechromed' browser (doesn't really operate over the Internet - it's a behind-the-firewall thing). Since our target customer base is currently using Windows-based thick-client app product (and keyboarders use F1 most often to access Help), we'd like to hijack the browser's F1 to open our help instead of IE's.

      Evidence suggests that this can be done (though it might look like virus activity to some watchdog activites) - can anyone point me in the right direction?
