fargoCommented:
you have to use onload like the following:

<body onload="document.Formname.fieldname.focus();" >
...
..
</body>

There is no other way AFAIK.

you can try using TABINDEX property of HTML as well..
set it to 1 to get the focus..

Yes there is...

Put the javascript inline...

ie:

<html>
  <head><title>Woo!?</title></head>
  <body>
    <form>
      <input type="text" name="firstParam"><br>
      <input type="text" name="secondParam" id="focusMe"><br>
    </form>
    <script type="text/javascript">
      document.getElementById( 'focusMe' ).focus() ;
    </script>
  </body>
</html>

Should work too..

Tim, I mean to say that there is no other way of doing this (except javascript).
I don't know whether tabindex will work!

Sorry, I thought you meant there was no other way but the onLoad event ;-)

went thru the DHTML reference library...  
object.focus() method is the only way to setting the focus on any element..
