In a html table, how do you tab down a column and not across?

In a html table, how do you tab down a column and not across?

I already tried to set the tabindex for each cell in the table, but the tab still goes across the table and down each column which I want.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

think it needs to be in the item inside the table cell.  this works for me in Chrome:

<table border="1">
<td><input type="text" id="txt1" tabindex="1" /></td>
<td><input type="text" id="txt2" tabindex="3" /></td>
<td><input type="text" id="txt3" tabindex="2" /></td>
<td><input type="text" id="txt4" tabindex="4" /></td>

I tried this already, and it didn't work in IE, Google Chrome or FF...
hmm, I tested in Firefox 3.6, IE 8, and Chrome 10.0.648.204 (win server 2003) and didn't see any problem at all.
mind posting your code?
