Hi everyone,

Awhile ago when I was working on the first release of Fluid's keyboard  
accessibility plugin for jQuery, I created an example of how to use it  
with the jQuery UI Tabs widget.

Thanks to help from David Bolter, we've now  got a fully functioning  
example of how ARIA and keyboard navigation can be added to jQuery:


This accessible tabs example ships in the Infusion bundle as sample  
code, but we're sharing this back with the jQuery community as a  
starting point in helping them add accessibility support to their  
widget set.

David, thanks so much for contributing your ARIA expertise to this  
example. You rule!
