Not a problem, I don't see myself getting too much done this week with
Easter coming up.

That is the way of HTML, this isn't a Trinidad consideration, but
something specific to writing web sites. Note that you don't have to
set all the tab indexes, but only the ones that you want to get focus
first (as I mentioned, elements without tab indexes are tabbed too
after all the explicit ones).

So if I have a log in form, the tab indexes would probably be:

user name: 1
password: 2
submit: 3

And then everything else would not have one. This way all the
"template" components would be tabbed, just not first.
