Hiya.  You can do those both with HTML and CSS, you don't specifically
need Perl.  Use accessibility hints to tell the browser where the cursor
should end up, and use an anchor (possibly in combination with a
redirect) to load the page at the correct location.

Feel free to email me off-list if you want more detailed help with it.
