What is the best practise if a web page has a tab panel and the content dynamically updates after the tab is selected?

1.      Should the focus move to the first focusable element?

2.      The focus does not move, leaving it up to the user?
This brings up another question. When should the focus automatically move to the first focusable element, other than dialogs/pop-ups when dealing with dynamic content?
