Really? I don't have any personal experience with this but I 
thought that, for example, JAWS interprets IE in the order in 
which it is presented on screen, top left to bottom right which 
means that it wouldn't matter if you have content first in HTML or 
last, the reading order is based on final presentation. This being 
the case, wouldn't tab order also follow presentation order, not 
code order?
