ah, yes.... good point. I hadn't thought of that. However, in this instance I'm going to choose to ignore that since I still think it spoils the appearance and the visitors to this site are likely to be standard IE or Netscape browsers.
Thanks also for the tag quoted. I tried this last night and found it made no difference (IE6). However, I did notice that when I viewed the page under IE5 today, the outline didn't happen anyway! So now I'm just confused totally!
