This rule disallows use of positive tabindex attribute.


n HTML, the tabindex attribute is used to specify the tab order of elements when navigating through a page using the "Tab" key. By default, elements are included in the tab order based on their position in the HTML source code. The tabindex attribute allows you to modify this order.

It's generally a good practice to let the natural flow of elements in the HTML dictate the tab order whenever possible. Setting explicit tabindex values should be used sparingly and only when there's a specific reason to deviate from the default order.

How to use
