I'm using Java 6 on OS X 10.6, not 10.5. I haven't run into any focus  
issues like you describe on Snow Leopard, but that's with my latest  
code I checked in yesterday. I can try it out on Leopard and see what  
happens there.

Grant could probably give more information as to what was happening in  
the Browser that required him to do that. Since the WebView is added  
as a child of the Canvas, clicks and keystrokes would normally go to  
the Canvas and not the WebView inside it unless you transferred focus  
to it manually when the top-level view gets focus.

It seems odd to me that 1.5 would work but 1.6 would not work on  
Leopard, as the AWT isn't that dramatically different from 1.5 to 1.6.
