Fixed on buttons, toolbar buttons, tabs, etc. Popup windows also close when 'ESCAPE' key is used.

Fixed the color and date selection dialogs. These can use arrow keys to move up/down/left/right as well.

I think this will be enough for now. Popup dialogs should be ok in most cases. Table listings, etc would require a lot more work to get working with only keyboard.

Turned out that IE doesn't send 'keypress' events for cursor keys. Need to use 'keydown' instead.
