outline: none CSS property

ArtLung.com rocks!

email me.

The email link above has a style set to "outline: none" - the first link does not. IE5 for the Mac appears to respect the style as set. It prevents the -to some people- annoying "focus" outline which IE5 adds. On IE5/WinNT this property does not do anything. This is a separate issue. Francis U. sent me a note that Mozilla 0.92 does not respect the outline:none property, sadly. If you have additional feedback about this property in your browser of choice just let me know.
