Description of problem:
When you run one of the demo programs such as SwingSet2, using appletviewer (i.e. 'appletviewer SwingSet2.html') using the TAB key does not allow you to move focus between components.
As an example select the JButton, JRadioButton, JToggleButton, JCheckbox demo in SwingSet2. If you now select the Text Button labelled 'One' using the mouse it is shown as having the focus (blue rectangle around the text). If you now try to use the TAB key to move the focus to the TextButton labelled 'Two', it doesn't work.
Note that the same problem doesn't occur if the SwingSet2 demo is run using 'Java -jar SwingSet2.jar', but the same problem is seen with other demos such as Java2Demo.
