Is there a way of specifying the tab index of input fields on a form so that you can control the tab order?

If so is this browser specific?

TIA

CJ is right about tabindex.  It works for IE4+ and Netscrape 6

For cross-browser you have to use the blur event point to the next field:

<input type="text" name="field1" onblur="document.myform.field2.focus()">

it is a bit of work for a bit for.  All the fields should be named, and then you have to add the onBlur to each one.  Also more difficult to maintain.
