If one focuses on a WYSIWYG editor on a page using the Tab key, dead keys (as well as the Compose key) produce absolutely no effect.
Clicking on the editor seems to fix the problem in any case. But only temporarily, since focusing out of the editor and then back in (again using Tab), makes the dead keys stop working again.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open any webpage containing a WYSIWYG editor, for example http://freetextbox.com/.
2. Click anywhere on the page other than in the editor.
3. Press Tab, or Shift+Tab, until the editor is focused.
4. Type dead acute + a, or Compose key + ' + a.
Actual Results:  
dead acute + a produces only a, while compose key + ' + a produces 'a.

Expected Results:  
Both sequences should produce á.
