positionnig to a table row

i've used it before...isn't there a character entity that will position the browser to a given table row?
it might be considered a CSS attribute....

A simple way is to have an anchor point for every row in the table, then when you return you can tell it to go to the specific anchor point.

From my understanding of your question, you want to focus the cursor onto a specific table cell or textbox when the page loads.
You do this with javascript similar to below:

onload="document.myform.textbox1.focus()"

If I have interpreted your question incorrectly then please clarify.

The other option I see with your question is you want to set an anchor point in the page.

i want to position the browser at a certain row in a <table>.
in this case, the user selects a row from a <table> ...goes to an update page....and when returns...the browser position(centers) on the row that was just updated.

i know what row to position the browser based on the completed update, so when i redirect back to
listing page...i know what row from the database i need to position.

i'm positive there an attribute(it might a CSS thing) that is used on the <tr> tag that centers the browser on that table row.
