focus() on load or refreshing a form?

I have a form.htm that a user will enter several blanks of information. These fields are in a table format one above the other.
 
When I load my webpage, the focus is on the third field and I can't figure out why.

Can someone tell me how to code so the focus is in the name field, which is the first entry blank the user should start with.

Thanks a bunch.

You can also use the CSS label attribute - this was specified to allow users to tab properly from one element to the next...

<html>
<head>
<title>Hello</title>
<style type="text/css">
<!--
form  {
      font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
      font-size: 14px;
      color: #000000;
      }

label {
      float: left;
      width:200px;
      clear:both;
      }
//-->
</style>
</head>
<body>
<form>
<label for="username">Username:</label> <input type="text" sixe="10" name="username"><br />
<label for="password">Password:</label> <input type="text" sixe="10" name="password"><br />
<label for="name">Name:</label> <input type="text" sixe="10" name="name"><br />
<label for="address">Address:</label> <input type="text" sixe="10" name="address"><br />
</form>
</body>
</html>

Thanks, let me try it... I actually have a bigger problem now, which I just opened up another question for because of its length. I will let you know if it worked.
