On radio2 I have set the tabindex as 1 and in radio1 I set the tabindex as 2. But the tabindex's dont work, after I hit tab on radio2 the focus goes somewhere else... what am i doing wrong?

<form id="Form1" method="post" runat="server">
&nbsp; <INPUT id="Radio2" style="Z-INDEX: 102; LEFT: 142px; POSITION: absolute; TOP: 77px" type="radio" value="Radio2" name="RadioGroup" runat="server" tabIndex="1">
<INPUT id="Radio1" style="Z-INDEX: 103; LEFT: 208px; POSITION: absolute; TOP: 77px" type="radio" value="Radio1" name="RadioGroup" runat="server" tabIndex="2">

if i'm remembering correctly...

tabindexes on radio button in the same group can only have one tab index. once the radio button group has focus, you must navigate the choices with the arrow keys, but only one tabindex pergroup

yeah, can't be done for buttons of the same group. you must use arros keys once group has focus
