Tab key navigation broken in modal dialog in IE8

Blocked by: Blocking:

Using the tab key to cycle through the elements of a modal dialog is broken in IE8. Tabbing off the last dialog element will not cycle back to the first dialog element, it is instead lost to the browser's toolbar.

Similarly, reverse navigation with shift-tab is also broken.

This is reproducible with IE8 on the dialog demo site.

In IE 8, keypress events don't get generated.

Maybe keydown should be used for tab navigation inside the Dialog.

Also, as it's stated in keypress API, for SHIFT+TAB a keypress event is not generated.
