Subject: Menu and submenu

Can you please tell how menu and submenu should work with keyboard?
My understanding is :

*        when no menu is opened , Tabbing takes you across the menu items in the horizontal row

*        When one of the menu items has focus, pressing the Enter key, Spacebar open the submenu

*        When Menu is opened (that has submenu), tab will close the existing submenu and restores the focus to ? ( the Parent menu item  or this show take focus to next menu / to the first item in the menu bar)

*        Up and Down arrow to navigate within the open submenu items

*        Pressing the Escape key closes the submenu and focus should be restore to parent menu item
