Form element with no tab index

P: n/a
Hi,

is there a way, to make a form element like a radio button unaccessable
by the tab-key? I just want to skip them, since they are set
appropriately by a script..

I only know the tabindex attribute, but that doesn't help, since I want
to skip them at all and no make them the last elements.

Thanks!!

No, but you can cause some damage when trying to do so.

set appropriately by a script..
Are they? Even when the user's browser has scripting disallowed and the user
cannot even change that (e.g., due to company policy)? Or do you mean
server-side scripting?

And why are they there if the user is not supposed to change them? Please
specify the real problem, not an assumed (wrong) approach to solving an
unspecified problem. And don't forget the URL.

Followups narrowed - this isn't a stylesheet issue.

If they are set appropriately by a script, why not handle that serverside,
I'm sure the the same logic will apply? Or if the user needs the
feedback/value has to be in the form, create a hidden input which holds
the value, and write some text to the page informing him of the current
choice.
