Unfortunately, we can't control Tab key focus in Flash 4. However, we can in
Flash 5 using the new ActionScript. So, if your project can use Flash 5,
this might be a great thing to investigate.

For the record, it uses the Selection.setFocus method to put the user's
cursor in the desired field. To capture the Tab key, one can use either the
onKeyPress event or check for the Key.getCode method with an If statement.
