There doesn't seem to be a bug that I can find in the pages, so I suspect IE.
A tabindex might help.

Just as a side comment there is an address for site feedback at the W3C Home
page and at the WAI home page, and that's a better first place to comment I
think.

  In any case might WAI need to consider rewriting their pages?

  Hi Jonathan
  I can confirm the strange behaviour on the WAI home
  page.
  I would say its a bug in IE6, there may be a
  workaround in terms of how the underlying code is
  written.
  For example a tabindex attribute may help things
  along.

  Using ie6 tabbing in ie6 seems very chaotic, please try:

  tabbing at the wai homepage: http://www.w3.org/WAI/ it is very hard to
  navigate.
  Tab to an anchor link, press enter, and tab again. not what one would
  expect.
  a similar problem is here:

  I don't know whether this is an insoluble problem, however I'm finding it
  very frustrating.
