how can I disable the focus() option from hyperlinks?

P: 110
I have a problem with hyperlinks receiving focus() when I am trying to direct it somewhere else. I know I can take a regular object out of the tab sequence by making it's tabindex="-1". However, that doesn't seem to work with hyperlinks. Any suggestions?
