Re: Tab Order in Forms

Hey Randal,
I tested in WinIE6. The problem seems to be that the browser doesn't
recognize multiple labels for form controls that refer to the same value
(both refer to the 'childCare' value).

I assume it's a browser glitch inherent to IE6. I also tested in Mozilla and
MacIE5, and it tabs fine.

Hope this helps,
