OK, here's a new one:

I want to be able to click a link and land on a specifically open tab in another page. I thought I had a solution with PHP, but that script only opens the tab, not the content of that tab.

Here is the tabbed page:

http://www.technologistsinc.com/pubTest/pubs.php

Here is the link page:

http://www.technologistsinc.com/pubTest/index.html

What am I missing (besides a deep understanding of scripting)?
