revlet interferes with Command T, Command N in Safari

Or is it just because the revMedia page has a game trapping the  
rawkeys??? If I click on the page outside of the revlet then I can  
Command T...

Hmmm? I wonder if there is a standard/acceptable way to show the  
difference between a page where the page has 'control' or where the  
revlet has 'control' so a user will know that for instance the keys  
are being trapped???

I would say this was the programmers issue and not the plugins.  
Whoever wrote the game on the revMedia site 'should' realize that  
being in a browser the user may want or need to be doing other things  
besides interacting with their applet while it is still running. ( I  
reloaded the revMedia page via History:Reopen All Windows From Last  
Session and never touched the page during this session. The game on  
that page loaded and has been playing for three days. My score is over  
300,000 and yet I never touched the game.) On loading of that page the  
revlet is now in 'Control' I had to click on the page (not intuitive)  
to change 'control' back to the browser/page itself.

I would think this should be strongly emphasized in a guidelines for  
implementing revlets on the web. Or is it already?

I honestly thought that there was something wrong with my wireless  
keyboard and after five minutes of troubleshooting then figured it was  
just this one page causing this. I had to lean forward from my  
recliner and use the mouse to switch tabs before I saw that it was not  
the keyboard acting up.
