Make sure you have a proper stylesheet : put this in the head section of your HTML document
<link href="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jqueryui/1/themes/base/jquery-ui.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />

Check out http://jqueryui.com/themeroller/ where you pick/create a theme.

Escape key and tab key are working the way you described...
