a. Using TABINDEX:

The lay out of fields on the following form example is intentionally confusing. However, because the TABINDEX code specifies a logical order for the fields, using the TAB key should present them to you in the "correct" order (for browsers that support the tabkey attribute - in fact, this specific example may only work (or work as the author expects) if you are using Internet Explorer 4.0 or later):

Note: please do NOT try to submit this example form. It may cause an error on some systems.
