Tab to buttons not working

Hi all,

In my HTML form, the tab does not go to the buttons. Instead after, tabbing over the input HTML elements, it continues to tab to the browser address bar, tag element etc and then only goes to the two buttons in this page.

Is there anyway where I can force the tabbing to happen over these buttons instead of over the address bar etc. I dont want to be manually adding tabindex to each and every HTML element as these are rendered using some custom tags. Suggestions are welcome. Also note that the HTML elements in this page are dynamically generated, so static tabindex wont work

You need to show what the rendered HTML markup looks like if you want help.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
