Ok, I've learned it the hard way.

We must put "OK" as the first button right after the input fields, for the following reasons (and move the Cancel somewhere else):

1) OK is and should be the default action

2) Too many people (including myself!) press CANCEL in a hurry, because it's the first button

3) If you use keyboard only (like in Opera) and even if the TABINDEX is defined, the RETURN key will activate the first button in the code after the last input field, thus currently activating CANCEL

FIX: Move OK to the left and first button in all forms.

Relocate CANCEL where?
