I have a List Box on a web page as described below:
         
Robert
Marilyn
Candace
June
Justin

The first line of the list box is blank, indicated by the below code

ListItem li3 = new ListItem("", "0");

I need the blank line to have the focus when the web page opens.
That is, the blank line will be selected when the page loads without the user selecting it.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
