I have a simple little javascript function in a page that is called when the page loads to set the focus to a specified field on the page.

function setFocus(fldID) {document.getElementById[fldID].focus();}

But, I want to use this to set the focus to an <INPUT> tag which, by definition, does not have an "id". It has only a "name".

Can someone tell me how I go about setting the focus to such a field?
