If I change this doctype, will the tab follow the tabindex I entered for each element?

What do I change it to:
The following URL has MANY POSSIBILITIES:

Is it that because all the data has been filled the comptuer jumps at the end of the page looking for a new tab index and because it doesn't find one it stays there,
That is my theory

Problme is how to fix it
If I put a large tab index at the start of the start of the page, the application will start with the second element... True when all the data is filled it will jump to the top of the page, so it's a no win situation...Either way it tabs where i don't want it to tab depending on whether there is data or not

Do yoy guys at least agree that this is what is happening, or am I completely off the track, making things up... guessing because I have no idea...

To me this makes perfect sense, but I need someone to confirm or deny my theory before I can take it to my boss... I will not close this question until someone tells me if I am wrong or right about this...
Because my boss wants an answer and I cannot give him just my opinion and still give you guys points
