The tabindex Attribute

The tabindex attribute controls the order in which the tab key moves the focus through the HTML page.

            <label>Name: <input type="text" name="name" tabindex="1" /></label>
            <p />
            <label>City: <input type="text" name="city" tabindex="-1" /></label>
            <label>Country: <input type="text" name="country" tabindex="2" /></label>
            <input type="submit" tabindex="3" />

An element with tabindex value of 1 is selected first. When pressing the Tab key, the element with a tabindex of 2 will be selected. A tabindex value of -1 ensures that an element will not be selected when the user presses the Tab key.
