How do I create an external link to a specific Tabbed Panel

I have set up a page using the Tabbed Panels example in Ch10 of Javascript the Missing Manual. This works well. However, how do I set a link from another page to a specific tab? I haved tried using the tab's id (e.g. page.html#panel3) but this does not work, it always goes to the first panel. Any ideas please?
