Hi all

If I have a search box on a page, how might I use JS to put the cursor on it?

I'm afraid JS is not really one of my strong points ;)

This is basically what google uses:
<html><head>
<script>
<!--
function sf(){document.f.q.focus();}
// -->
</script>
</head>
<body onLoad=sf()></body>
</html>
