jump to form field

Does anyone know the code that Yahoo and Google use to have your cursor automatically jump to a text field? For instance, when you go to google, you can just start typing instead of having to click in the search box.

Anyone know or use this code?

You could try something like this.


<body onLoad="document.form_name.form_field.focus();">

<form name="form_name">
<input name="form_field" value="">
