test case demonstrating bug (tested in WebKit)

Full Keyboard Access (FKA): when document.activeElement is hidden, it retains
its status as document.activeElement, and therefore intercepts keyboard events
as the event target.

Load attached test case and follow the instructions. It doesn't make sense that
a hidden, unfocusable, unrendered element would be retained as
document.activeElement, and therefore be an acceptable event target. This is
either a spec bug or a browser bug.
