konqueror tab focus

In msie, when typing in forms (like this forum message window) when I hit the tab key, the focus changes to the send button (or whatever the html code says is the next tab focus in line.) In konqueror, when I hit tab, I actually get a tab.

Is there a setting in konqueror that will allow the tab key to change focus rather than tab spaces?

unfortunately not that i know of. when the focus goes to the tab, you can still hit the tab key to traverse the page's that's in focus links, forms, buttons, etc. for me to traverse the tabs, i have to have the page that's in focus have the focus on it's tab and then use the cursor key to switch to the immediate next or previous tab and then i got to keep hitting the tab button to get back to the tab having focus. annoying, but that's the way konq works for me. it's faster to just use the mouse to click send form or something like that.
