      Description

      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
      Java Plug-in 1.5.0_08
      Using JRE version 1.5.0_08 Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM

      ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
      Windows XP
      IE 6

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      I just upgraded JRE 1.5.0 from update 7 to update 8 and the tab key no longer works in applets in Internet Explorer 6 (it works as before in Firefox).

      For example, if you go on http://www.bestcrosswords.com/ and load a puzzle, the tab key is supposed to move you from word to word but instead it takes the focus out of the applet and starts iterating the links on the page.

      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      1) Load a puzzle from http://www.bestcrosswords.com/
      2) Give focus to the applet
      3) Use the tab key

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      The applet should tab between words
      ACTUAL -
      The applet loses focus and the browser starts iterating the links of the page.

      REPRODUCIBILITY :
      This bug can be reproduced always.
