Gentlemen, there is a difference between tabbing to the next 
appropriate field, when the user's fingers are on the keyboard and 
wanting to get to the next place, and repositioning the cursor when 
they otherwise expect it to be under their mouse control. The former 
action obviously works well while the latter I personally abjure when 
writing and object to when using.
