The following script show the confirm box and pop the Mesage when someone click delete button and press ENTER key.(Default to OK)

Is there a way to default the javascript confirmbox to Cancel instead?

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="Javascript">
function decision(){
if(confirm("Are you sure to delete?")) { alert("you click DELETE");
// --->

TYPE="button" VALUE="Delete" NAME="button1"

No, you can't do that. Fact is you can't change the appearance of built-in dialog windows at all.

It's all for the best. Imagine a blind user or just a sloppy one like me. I expect the default to be "OK" because it always is. It could be very confusing if it wasn't and cause a lot of mistakes. :)
