Make tabs ignore menu

Hi, I've just downloaded the sample menu and after viewing it in IE7 I've noticed that when you use the tab button, it highlights the menu links first.

Is there a way to make the tab key ignore the menu altogether, or at least look at it last?

I will contact Milonic for information on this. I believe that would be a 'browser' programming issue to do with web accessibility. You know that powerful W3C place that develops the zillions of rules on how browsers are supposed to act/render as to standards and how pages are to be written/developed and so on.... :roll:

Now, I can give you info on how to make the full menu function through the tab key :) using the keypress.js module found here.---

Is there some reason you need to have it not respond to tab? I know if you set it up relatively, then the tab won't go directly to the menu, but will only go through the main menu items when it reaches whatever cell/div where you placed it.
