No, there isn't an alternative for tabindex in Netscape, it is just that they
haven't implemented it. (This is better than having different elements that
work in different browsers).

So for Netscape the tab order will be whatever order the things appear in the
source code. Which is almost always the sensible order anyway.

Cheers

  Hi everybody

  I know this question is more on HTML definition side, but I was stuck when
  this came across one of my page.
  Is there any alternate tag of "tabindex" of IE, which I can use for
  Netscape. I defined tabindex for links and it doesnt work while I see page
  in Netscape.
  Is there any other way to define the sequence of tab?

  Thanks
  Viral
