This is from the tabindex test page I wrote a few years ago. Anyone  
interested in actively collecting the results?

I just wanted to tell you that I found out that tabindex doesn´t work
properly if you mix them with links.
I tested in Mozilla and IE (for windows). I will test them on linux later.
I had a form to the left with many fields (on a table td) and text to
the right with links (on other td) .
Even I put tabindex in each link and fields, so doesn´t jump to the
links when filling the form.
looking to your test page, I figured out that was better to take out all
those tabindex and just putting them
to the links. So it goes first to those that doesn´t have tabindex and
then with those that have it.
It works!
