Re: is the tab order logical and appropriate?

Yes, you're right, the order that the controls appear in the HTML should follow the logical tab order.

It is possible to visually rearrange elements using CSS, but this may lead to confusion for all users, especially those using high magnification. The logical end of search options is the search button in most cases. But if the client wants it to look illogical, that's their choice of course.

Kind regards,
