Can you reference or quote my original reply. If you have a web address we
can try or a sandboxed test case that would be great.
Its been almost a year now that IE8 has RTW and Win7 has also been released
and depending upon your Windows version, there may be differences in
behavior of IE8 versions.
My experience is that MANY issues can be traced to the poor coding of web
pages. Typically a web site may use an <input> tag without an outer <form>
tag or some AJAX enabled web controls may be using event bubbling or
incorrect attribute values (tabindex, for) may be being ignored by the
browser's error correction handling.
The IE8 shortcut keys for history(-1).... Shift+left arrow or Backspace are
documented recommendations from the WGA.
Hint.... what do you call a man in the ocean with no arms. Bob
Some ppl do not have tactile keyboard or mouse access.
My own site works as expected... I use <label
for="theinput"><u>N</u>ame:</label><input name="theinput" tabindex="1"/>
pairs and have validated for accessibility issues. (Use the Total validator
instead of the w3c markup validator for a comprehensive page analysis). You
can use the :select pseudo class to ensure that the contents of an <input>
tag is selected when it has focus.
Yes I too have seen the issue on other web sites (www.ask.com
)... they have
incorrectly chosen a strict DTD which will ignore the accessibility
attributes in tags.
Despite your concerns, there is nothing we can do to assist you as we are
not Microsoft employees and the feedback portal for IE8 at connect is no
longer accepting new tickets.<wink>they may be contemplating the next phase
of the SDLC</wink>
