Re: getting different result using IE and Chrome

Are you using any screen reader technology? In some sites items wither hidden offscreen, the tab order will still go there, and JAWS / NVDA will still speak the item but you can't see focus borders. I have seen a few other weird tab order issues especially in sites that make use of flash.

Best wishes,
