Hi Dan,

Sarah & Ken have addressed your question; but it raises another 
question I have been wondering about (but am too lazy to test before 
asking if someone else knows):

Traditionally X-Talks have used the tab key to navigate from field to 
field.  How does that change with tabs in fields?
Is there any way to tab OUT of a field that has tabstops set?
If not, what key replaces tab as the user's signal to move from one 
field to the next?
