active: span in IE6?

Sent by Jonathan Chetwynd on 21 September 2005 14:02

The code snippet* validates for css and html, the link works in IE6  
and firefox,
but in IE6 one can't give focus, the hand cursor isn't there, and one  
can't change the border-color via css.

is there a workaround for any or all of these three issues?

adding content to span does not appear to effect the outcome.
