First, I am new to this so with this in mind, I am using VWD 2008 to create a 3.5 asp.net site with a master page that contains a login control.  I placed the login control in a panel ("panelLogin").  I wanted to customize its look so I created a template.  

Now I want to set the initial focus after the page loads to the username textbox ("username") on the master page.  When the user presses enter on the keyboard, I want to set focus to the password textbox ("password"), and then if they press Enter I want to trigger the login button ("loginbutton").  I see it all the time on other websites but am not sure of the 'commonly accepted' way to accomplish this?
