Well I'll guessing this reponse but Im deduce this form html code :)

the deault acction is implemented by a hidden submit input.. <input
type="submit" class="submit" style="position: absolute; top: -100em;"
name="7" value="Default" tabindex="-1">.. in a hidden div or a text input if
your browser is explorer.

In other situation when you press enter the post have your field values and
the variable 7=Default,,, 7 is an id on the fly generated. that value
identify the default block in the WeakDictionary of the session.

When you do submit via jquery the "7" field is'nt setting, because, nothing
happend when you are do submit via Jquery.

For obteing your expecting behiavior i suggest 3 way.

1. Extend WAFormTag for obteing or assing the id for the default action
control, and then do submit
2. Or Implement you own hidden button.
3. Obteing the id and value to defaultAction continuation and set this
variable en your post..

That Solution don't be beatyfull but must work..
