    When first loading the demo page (http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/editor/examples/overview/defaultcs.aspx), strictly using a keyboard with no mouse, we have no issue using the <Tab> key to tab through every element on the web page to get to the Editor.  Once you get to the Editor's toolbars and start tabbing all the way into the content area, you cannot <Tab> to the "Design", "HTML", "Preview" tabs below the content area.  You can <Shift> + <Tab> to go back up, but you cannot <Tab> past the content area.  Is there a special key combination I am not aware of to be able to escape the content area?

    I just wanted to clarify that this happens in IE and Chrome browsers.  Firefox seems to be working for some reason.

    Hello Nicholas,

    When it comes to keyboard support and accessibility, it is suggested the AccessibleEditor control to be used—http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/editor/examples/accessibleeditor/defaultcs.aspx

    This demo page runs into the same issue as the other demo page.  Once getting to the content area, <Tab> key is not able to get past that area.
