I have a search form that starts with a dropdown menu and includes a  
few other dropdowns and checkboxes, but no text box. I know the rule  
about putting default focus in a text box, but what about a form with  
other functionality? Should there be focus on the first dropdown of my  
form by default?

Also, is there a reason the Enter/Return key should *not* submit a  
form that contains dropdowns etc. but not a text box?

Thank you,
