The form fields in webkit appear much more accessible that current safari 2.0.  However I'm noticing that buttons are still not accessible.   I see there was bug 7138 that asked for all elements, but I'm thinking to get a few more of the form controls would be a huge win if not all.

Getting these three buttons to be accessible would be great.

<input type="button"/>
<input type="submit"/>
<button>Text</button>

Adding 7138 as a dependency

Todd, I am able to tab to buttons as long as I enable the "Press Tab to highlight each item on a webpage" preference in the Advanced section of Safari's preferences and use a WebKit nightly build.

Ah, you're right.  I'm using a nightly, I didn't realize that was an option I had to enable.
