Autofocus support for any focusable HTML/SVG element

Adds the 'autofocus' attribute to any focusable HTML or SVG element.

'Autofocus' has been supported for limited number of HTML elements, and there were elements which could be focusable but didn't support the 'autofocus' attribute. This feature fixes the inconsistencies.
