Opera 9.02, tabindex on elements with display:none not working
IE and FF working fine

i have for example 10 input elements type="image" with tabindex from 1 to 10.

Set some of them to display:none and Opera 9.02 stops tabbing at these elements. You can not get to higher tabindexes.
IE and FF are working fine.

Is this a bug or a feature ;-)
Does someone knows a workaround?

Thank you!

It's a feature - Opera removes elements styled with
display:none; completely out of the DOM, which leads to the kind of problems you are experiencing. Here's an earlier thread on a very similar issue:
