Disabling F1 Key in Browser

Hello: Is there any way to disable the F1, F2, etc keys in a browser using javascript or something? I think when you press F1 in IE it will pop up a help menu and I dont want that. Thanks in advance.

I think with IEAK you can do what you are talking about. If you mean across the board, no matter what browser you are using, you would need to capture all F keys and do something with them, ie: /dev/null
