Description

The tab order inside the Reply widget is mostly top-to-bottom (edit box, advanced link, footer links, buttons), and I would like it to be useful-to-unusual instead.

Previously discussed in T271773#6934879. At the time we have it up, since it was technically complex to implement and it wasn't clear anyone wanted it. Maybe we should reconsider.

Change 763606 had a related patch set uploaded (by DLynch; author: DLynch):

[mediawiki/extensions/DiscussionTools@master] New topic: skip tabbing into the mode tabs until you've focused the body

That's only a minor increment on this ticket's concept. It specifically tweaks the tab order on the new-topic version of the widget.
