Bug Description

The lightbox for viewing metadata for a skin (on /skin/index.php in latest master) is not accessible to users of screen readers.
- the close button is a plain <div> with no tabindex specified so it cannot be activated using the keyboard
- when the lightbox is opened focus should be set and locked to it using ARIA

If this lightbox script is used elsewhere the same problem will occur.

Made skin metadata lightbox keyboard-accessible (Bug #1259689)

Focus now goes to the lightbox close button when it is opened and back
to the "view information" button when it is closed. The lightbox is
now inserted immediately after the button which activates it to improve
the document flow for screen reader users.
