I know - it's because I don't give the width and height of each image
in the HTML.

No, there is text before the images.

In Firefox one tab (after the "skip to content") goes straight to the
first picture - I'll have a look why it doesn't in IE. The page does
scroll up, so we do arrive at #content, but then the next tab goes to
the top of the page again. Makes no sense to me.

It also doesn't help that IE7 needs 8 (!) tabs to get to the page at
all. (address bar, refresh button, Google search box, Google search
box button, favourites button, page tab, home button)

Use Firefox! :P

It has both the browser's own focus outline, and a subtle colour
change. But...we were talking motor skills, not eye strain - it's a
photo gallery after all, remember? ;-)

That's one thing I could add, yes, a back link. Without a mouse, there
is no indication that the image itself leads back to the thumbnails,
although it is the case in almost every photo gallery I've ever seen.

I find it easier without the mouse to be honest! No need to find the
pointer on my screen, no need to stretch my arm onto my desk, no risk
of throwing over my tea... ;-)

That is, unless I'd be stuck with IE :\
