prevent "control n" from opening a new browser window with an applet

I have an applet, A, totally occupying a browser window. Not surprisingly, A new browser window opens with another instance of applet A in it. I put some javascript in the HEAD section to intercept "Control N", but it is not preventing a new browser window from opening! I tried to test it by trying to pop up an alert box if I type "control N". javascript works if there is no applet on the page.

Should this be working? If no, what do I need to do? How does an applet hand-off keystrokes like "control N" to the browser?

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
