Ticket #7907 (closed bug: duplicate)
.focus() does not work on <area> but should according to w3c
|Reported by:||anonymous||Owned by:|
Setting the focus to an <area> does not work. However if you use the tab-key for sequential keyboard navigation, you can easily see that areas are / should be focusable.
