Re: [css-d] IE links outline problem

Sent by eoghan on 31 January 2002 12:12

to get rid of the dotted lines use this:

<a href="blah" onfocus="this.blur();">link</a>

: Yep. I guess this is a new bug (or at least, unexpected behaviour) in IE.

: Give a width to the A's. I added width: 200px; to the .navigation a style
: and then the dotted border just encloses a nice block of 200px.
: Unfortunately you cannot do width: 30% since IE interprets this as "30% of
: the space between the content block and the border" instead of "30% of the
: page".
: Nasty problem. I'm afraid there is no easy solution.
