Drupal form default input focus

Drupal form FAQ: How do I get default input focus on a Drupal form field (presumably a form textfield)?

There may be a better way to do this, but here's what I just did to get default input focus on a series of Drupal form 'add' and 'edit' pages. I just included the following Drupal form suffix definition on any form where I wanted to control the default input focus:

$form['#suffix'] = '<script type="text/javascript">'
                 . 'jQuery(\'input#edit-name\').focus();'
                 . '</script>';

In this case I had a 'name' field defined something like this:

$form['name'] = array(
  '#type' => 'textfield',
  '#title' => t('Name'),
  '#required' => TRUE,
  '#description' => "A name for your widget",
  '#weight' => 10,

This results in a text field being rendered in my form something like this:

<input type="text" id="edit-name" name="name" value="" class="form-text required" /> 

As a result, the JavaScript/jQuery focus function call shown earlier matches up with the 'edit-name' id tag of my form's textfield. I've made the 'edit-name' fields bold so you can see them a little more easily.

As mentioned, there may be other and better ways to put default input focus on a field in a Drupal form, but this approach does work. (I've used other approaches with CSS and jQuery using Java and CakePHP, but this seems to work well for Drupal forms.)
