Re: Keyboard navigation in JHTML component

Ctrl-T and Ctrl-Shift-T were chosen because Tab was being  used for
something else (we can ping Lynn Monsanto for the exact why if it's

to put these key sequences in the key map but I think Tab should be the
advertised method for navigating links and other interactive elements
in the page.
