That's a HTML thing. From Wilbur (about the INPUT tag)

The ACCESSKEY and TABINDEX attributes apply to all input types except 
hidden. ACCESSKEY specifies a single Unicode character as a shortcut key 
for giving focus to the form control. Authors can set the access key on 
the INPUT element or the LABEL element associated with it. Entities (e.g. 
&eacute;) may be used as the ACCESSKEY value.

The TABINDEX attribute specifies a number between 0 and 32767 to indicate 
the tabbing order of the element. A form control with TABINDEX=0 or no 
TABINDEX attribute will be visited after any elements with a positive 
TABINDEX. Among positive TABINDEX values, the lower number receives focus 
first. In the case of a tie, the element appearing first in the HTML 
document takes precedence.
