Pointer of mouse and text form.

Anybody know wether one can create such text-form that pointer of mouse
will be automatically set in the text field of form? It means that user
can type text immediately after page has been loaded, without putting
pointer of mouse by hand in the text field.

Thank you.

Yes, of course, but it's actually javascript...
Place the next inside the body tag:


nothing more to it...

Quoted text here. Click to load it

In some cases this can be really annoying. If there are multiple form
fields on the page and the user already starts typing while the page
loads he will probably not be very happy when the focus jumps back to
the first field after the download is complete.

Yes, i know. But on the other hand, i find it quite
useful on simple forms with only one or 2 fields,
like login-pages...
