Form Issue

I have this code:

<?php if ( comments_open() ) : ?>

<div class="blogbefore"></div>
<div class="blog">
<div class="contentconstraint">
<h3>Leave a comment</h3>
<p class="headertext">Comments can contain some xhtml. Names and emails are required (emails aren't displayed), url's are optional.</p>
<form id="commentform" action="<?php echo get_option('siteurl'); ?>/wp-comments-post.php" method="post">
<br />
<!--<php smilies_clickable() ?>-->
<br />
     <textarea name="comment" id="comment" cols="120" rows="6" tabindex="1"></textarea>
     <input type="hidden" name="comment_post_ID" value="<?php echo $post->ID; ?>" />
     <input type="hidden" name="redirect_to" value="<?php echo htmlspecialchars($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']); ?>" />

<?php if(!$user_ID) : ?>

     <div id="inputcontainer">
     <div id="namefield">
       <input type="text" name="author" id="author" class="textarea" value="" size="15" tabindex="2" /><br />
       <label for="author">Name</label>
     <div id="emailfield">
       <input type="text" name="email" id="email" value="" size="15" tabindex="3" /><br />
       <label for="email">E-mail</label>
     <div id="urlfield">
       <input type="text" name="url" id="url" value="" size="15" tabindex="4" /><br />
        <label for="url"><acronym title="Uniform Resource Identifier">URI</acronym></label>

<?php else : ?>

          You are logged in as <?php echo($user_identity); ?>.

<?php endif; ?>

     <p id="submitter">
       <input name="submit" id="submit" type="submit" value="I'm done, post it." />

     <?php do_action('comment_form', $post->ID); ?>
<div class="blogafter"></div>

<?php else : // Comments are closed ?>

<?php endif; ?>

This code works fine in Firefox but doesn't allow the user to click on the form and use it in IE, can anybody see what the problem is?  Here is a sample page with the actual form.

I don't know what the problem is, not yet anyway, but the thing is if you hit the tab key you will go thru all the links on the page and eventually come down to the form and then it will work, I don't know why, may be IE6 does not recognize the tabindex or it will go thru all the one without a tabindex number first.

Are you sure... u can click on the top text comment form?
It works on IE6/XP - What OS are you having problems in?  Form controls have OS-specific traits.
Works here on IE6/Win2003Server
