dojo.connect() not providing enough key information on keyup and keypress

Description (last modified by bill)

currently, dojo.connect() doesn't portably provide a keyChar property for both the keyup and keypress events across browsers. Enough data is available in both events to normalize, so we should.

Fixing this will allow the editor and other key-listener components to drop a lot of code.

Note that this is by Scott's design. keyup and keypress are meant to be used for control keys (like arrows) and visible keys (like letters and numbers) respectively.
