Hello,
I visit freshports sort of frequently to look up news on what is happening with various ports. Usually I have to use the lookup utility by keyword. I'd like to suggest however, that the text entry field have an accesskey defined.

Probably just set accesskey="k" and possibly underline the leter "K" in keyword above it. This would make the site a bit easier to use.

What do you mean by 'accesskey="k"'?

Have a look at http://www.google.com/. Notice how your cursor is in the text field and flashing? Is that what you want?

I was referring to the main index page, but it probably applies there as well.

Part of the HTML 4x standard has accesskey functionality for form fields. Using Javascript to autofocus is a bit presumptuous for any complex page, but probably appropriate for something as simplistic as google. Anyway, accesskeys don't use javascript, but are a part of html (4) form fields.

Example:

<u>K</u>eyword: <br/>
<INPUT NAME="query" TYPE="text" SIZE="8" accesskey="k" />

Different browsers access the key differently. ctrl+k on OSX alt+k on Windows/Linux.

Thanks for your time.
