Anyone have any references to making normal HTML web pages more keyboard
driven? I couldn't find anything in Google, maybe I just wasn't searching
right. I think input tags can have some kind of taborder attribute (to
override the default left-right up-down), but maybe that's just IE. Beyond
mere tabbing, I'd really love a "hotkey" ability, but AFAIK there is no way
to do this with plain HTML. Any other tips and tricks?
