Mona - 

You could put a little Javasript snippet in the <body> tag of your page
that could do this.

For example, if I had a form like this:

<form action="something.pl" methhod="post" name="myForm">
<input type="text" name="myText">

You would have something like this in your <body> tag:

<body bgcolor="#FFFFFF" onload="document.forms.myForm.myText.focus();">

This would focus the curson in the textbox named 'myText' in the form
named 'myForm' ..

This probably isn't fullproof, and it for sure won't work if they dont
have javascript enabled, but its a start.. I'm by no means a javascript
guru so maybe someone else has a better idea..

Hope that helps.. :)
