Believe it or not, you can't capture the keypress event for the Tab key in IE (any version).
Are you serious? I hear you ask... well, lets make proving this fun.
In the following textarea, type in any key... you'll get $5* for any key, but you'll get $2,500* for pressing the Tab key.
You can make a boatload of cash in Firefox, Safari, Opera and Konqueror but you'll never get a $2,500 payout in IE.
Known Workarounds: None. If you want to capture the Tab key, you'll need to capture the keydown and keyup events instead.
*All currency is of the imaginary non-legal currency type.
