I find it's a common desire with "tab" design patterns that there is a way to link to specific tabs. As in, you could give someone a URL and that URL would lead them to that page with the specific desired tab active and displaying the correct content.
If each tab is a completely different URL, it's easy. In the HTML that is served, the appropriate class name is applied to the tab to make it look active, and the appropriate content below is served.Wufoo uses a tab design pattern inside the app. Each tab is a entirely different page and URL.
