Setting a default hyperlink


I want to have a hyperling “highlighted” on a page such that if the visitor hit “return”, that link is activated and the page opened.

To clarify… if TAB is pressed repetedly, the hyperlinks are highlighted succesively. How do I set one of these to be the ‘starter’?

Kindest regards,

<title>Untitled Document</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">

<body onLoad="document.getElementById('firstlink').focus()">
<a href="http://" tabindex="1" id="firstlink" onFocus="this.style.backgroundColor='#FFFF00'" onBlur="this.style.backgroundColor=''">First Link</a>
<a href="http://" tabindex="2" onFocus="this.style.backgroundColor='#FFFF00'" onBlur="this.style.backgroundColor=''">Second Link</a>
<a href="http://" tabindex="3" onFocus="this.style.backgroundColor='#FFFF00'" onBlur="this.style.backgroundColor=''">Third Link</a>
<a href="http://" tabindex="4" onFocus="this.style.backgroundColor='#FFFF00'" onBlur="this.style.backgroundColor=''">Fourth Link</a>

Just use that general pattern. You may find that you don't have to set the tabindex, so play around with it.

Good Luck!
