My Applet no longer allows tab navigation between fields if it is accessed in a browser that uses a Java Plug-In.  Has anyone heard of such a problem?  Is there a remedy?

Are you using some sort of KeyListener in the boxes that mabe eats up the tab key if it is pressed?

No KeyListener.

The Tab key works in browsers without the plugin (Netscape) and I've even seen in work with the plugin in an older IE browser.

Oracle posted a new version of the Java Plug-in in April-May that resolved my problem without any modifications to my applet.
