Should tab order always strictly follow visual order?

I'm wondering if people have feedback on the use of tab to move from
field to field in a form, in a situation where some of the fields have
likely defaults.

To expand a little bit:
- the logical flow (how people think about) entering this kind of data
is A-B-C-D-E-F-G.
- in the context of the application I can reliably pre-fill values for
fields C, D, and E. (here "reliably" means >90% of users tested will
want the default values in >90% of the use cases)

What I'd like to do is have <TAB> move the user from A-B but then from
B-F, skipping the defaulted fields.

Process Books

I am planning on entering the Interaction '10 student competition,
which requires submissions in the form of a process book. However, I
am not familiar with the documentation style of process books. Can
anyone recommend any good examples or guidelines to follow when
creating one? I can speculate about what should be included but would
like to be sure that I am on the right track.

Thanks in advance!

Presenting the case for good online form design.

Hi all,

I'm in search of some statistics and advice for a meeting I have on
Monday. My situation is that we've designed and are nearing
completion of developing an online membership activation form. It has
a reasonably complex set of business rules which must by met and an
offline activation form will also be made available, although one of
the project objectives is to streamline the activation process. In
this, the 11th hour, we've received a new requirement to include a
new set of 'terms and conditions' the user must agree to in order
to complete the process.
