Not a bug  Make tab => enter always work for submitting content

Not quite sure if this is a bug or an enhancement request. I don't like the inconsistency of not being able to tab to the "submit" button (by hitting tab once) on all post editors.

New thread => Tab once => Submit button
Quick reply => Tab once => Submit button
Edit post => Tab once => Upload a file button
Reply to thread => Tab once => Upload a file button.

I wish there was a way to change the layout/order of things so that I could always hit tab once, then enter to submit the content. Even if the options check box were moved above the "upload a file" button, that would accomplish what I'm asking for.

Can always use the 's' accelerator key. Alt+s on IE, Alt-shift-s on Firefox etc.

Yeah, could never get my fingers used to alt-shift-s, plus I'm used to tab-enter and are we ever animals of habit. Anyway, I don't know if you would want to consider adding a second "submit" row right under the textarea, like it has on the "New Thread" form, but that might not look the best since there wouldn't be very much distance between the two submit rows.
