Okay folks, here's a problem I just ran into in the Appearance Runtime:

I have a spreadsheet-like window, with a single edit field that's used to
edit the cell contents. People expect to be able to press the tab key to
move the selection to the next cell to the right, but under FB/Appearance,
no event is generated! I've tried ON DIALOG, ON EDIT, and ON EVENT, and FB
doesn't give me any notification that the user has pressed the tab key.

Surely I'm not the only person who needs to handle this? Or am I missing
something obvious again?
