Doing a quick test for keyboard accessibility in Firefox, it 
looks/behaves good to me.

After digging a bit further in mootools' documentation (quite addictive, 
I have to admit), it looks like there may be a more elegant way to do 
this via chaining...but I haven't got my head around the finer points of 
the framework enough to say which one would be best.

I also posted the suggestion for a fix on the mootools forum.
