Hi Michael,

Further to Juerg's explanation, "focus" refers to the point that your 
virtual cursor (so to speak)  is over top of.

To use an unrelated example that may help, if you're in your 
favourite word processor and type the word  Loadstone, and press the left-arrow key  twice "focus" would be on the 
letter "n".

The term "direction" means  the numeric keys are absolutely mapped to the 
8  cardinal  directions (North, North-east, east, south-east Etc)

Hope that helps
