Setting frame focus?

Is there any way to set the focus for a frame within MSIE?
I use the onLoad="parent.frame.focus()" method which is supported by netscape... is there any way to do the same with explorer ie. make a frame active when it loads?

Sorry Barbara, the only way that I can think of is with VBscript, in which case you'll want to write a script that first detect's the browser flavor, then execute javascript frame.focus and VBscript Frame.select() within each browser specific function.
