Far be it from me to question the authority of a prophet (after all I 
work essentially for a church) but a look at the stone tablets called 
the "Gnome Documentation Project Style Guide" it says:



     The carriage return key on the alphanumeric part of the keyboard. 
In a text editor this key moves the cursor to the start of the next 
line. You can also use the Return key to initiate an action on the 
dialog element that has focus.


     The enter key on the numeric keypad.

I dare not to comtemplate the meaning of this conflict...

Some of the folks who did a lot of hacking on the GDP Style Guide work
for Sun.  Sun has "Real Unix Keyboards" on their workstations, which say
"Control", "Return" (on the alpha numeric portion), and "Enter" on the
number pad.  Personally, I'd go with the GDP style guide, but I'm sure
this is a great opportunity for another row over on the docs list (cc'd
there, BTW).
