Cursor into and out of table captions correctly with up/down arrow
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Following on from T200525 and T181416

The correct order should be:

Before table, table caption (if present), row1/col1, row2, ..., rowN, after table.

Currently this works in reverse (up), but in forward it skips over the caption.

The WIP patch solves about 25% of this issue, but cursoring out of the captions appears to be a bit harder, so leaving this up for grabs. Maybe @dchan has a better idea?

Ok, I added some code for cursoring downwards out of a caption. Note though that none of this code fixes things on Firefox.

Ok, I think we should worry about Firefox in a separate task, because the issues are different (and I guess more intractable).
