[Dojo-interest] keyboard focus issues after 'onkeypress' event

If I understand you right, you are removing the focused item and so leave the
browser to decide what item should be in focus afterwards. My guess is that
this response varies from browser to browser.

Rather than leaving the browser to guess what should be in focus next, why
not simply tell it to focus elsewhere before deleting the button? That way
you can determine which DOM node gets focus.
