How does it work with the HTML attribute "tabindex" on Safari (Mac)?

Hello,

Running Safari 3.0.4 with OS X 10.4.11 and the HTML attribute "tabindex" does not seem to work as it should when its related to inputs that are "submit" buttons.

The outcome for me is when I try to tab to the submit button it tabs to the browsers URL bar instead.

Anyone run into this problem?

Note Safari on Windows works fine, it just seems to be a problem on Safari Mac.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you

Sample 2: <input type="text" name="sample2" tabindex="2" />
<input type="submit" tabindex="3" />
</form>

I believe under OSX you need to turn on Full Keyboard Access for it to work properly. You can change this under System Preferences, in Keyboard & Mouse -> Keyboard Shortcuts.
