Two cents.
In my opinion the Update button should be outside the tab, just like
the OK, Apply and Cancel buttons (in fact I will call it just Apply).
This is one of the GUI guidelines that I follow, but it is personal.

 I have a problem with providing accelerator keys for buttons on a tab control.

Keeping it simple to save me typing, if I have a tab control with, say, 3 tabs and each tab has an Update button on it, how can I make it so that the user can hit <alt>U and that will fire the click event of the Update button on the tab that has focus. Needless to say each of the buttons has to have the caption [u]U</u>pdate.

Anyone got any neat tricks for this? Would be much appreciated.
