I went to the similar situations before. Tabbing to focus needs
some understanding of UI design technology. The IE browser
treats a group of radio buttons (with an identical name) as one
logical unit on a page. So the tabbing can only give you
the focus to one of the radio buttons.

If you would like to give another try, you will find the IE browser
treats a select menu (with one visible row) as one logical unit on
the page too. Once you tab to focus it, you use the up and down
arrow buttons to make selections.

If your business requirements need browsers, I would say
it is better to follow the *default* behaviors of the browsers.

I think what you are describing is the *default* behavior of browsers.
I am using IE 6.0 and once I tab to focus on the first radio button,
I use the left or right arrow keys to navigate to the next or previous
radio buttons with the same name attribute. Try this to see if it works
on your browsers.
