Question about button, clicking & slight visual I don't want / in IE6.0 :)

If I render this line of code in my IE 6 browser locally

<a href="#"><img src=http://www.google.com/intl/en_ALL/images/logo.gif
border=0></a>

when I click on the Google logo, there is a slight border that appears
around the logo (in IE 6.0). Without losing the href= functionality,
how can I not have that slight border appear upon clicking the logo
and doing stuff?

Warmest regards, Cindy

Use Lynx?
Don't click there?
Add border:none for the a:link rule in your CSS?
Come over to my place?

Well, actually, like it or not (dearest, sweetest, _warmest_ Cindy) I
really think the last suggestion is the best one. Because I've got IE6
here at home and I don't get the border you're talking about. Got a URL
where it's happening?

And of course: what's wrong with the border? It's there to give your
visitors feedback. It's a Good Thing. Innit?

That is referred to as the focus outline. It is an accessibility aid and
very useful to those of us who are keyboard users. It is not just an IE
feature, either.

Leave it alone. It is there for your visitor's benefit. Or is the page
just for your personal use?

You should have said that then. Most of us create pages mainly for use by
other people, and when we create something for personal use, we tend to
solve our little personal problems by ourselves.

Well, wait for some years or decades to see whether you need accessibility
features.

Anyway, if you don't like the focus rectangle and this troubles you _so_
much that you post a question to a global newsgroup, why don't you switch to
Firefox? It's regarded by many as considerably better than IE 6.

Alternatively, add the hidefocus attribute into your <a> tag.

Thank you for your suggestions, I need to keep this in IE 6.0 heaven,
so I'm sorry the others will not work, but there is a way to modify
the other tag to get this to work just in ie?

Yep, Big Bill has threatened to squeeze the life out of his pet hamster
if he switched, download FF and "Lil' Hammy" gets it!

That faint focus box is just too dang distracting...wow, must have been
one of those Ridlin-kids! I guess you've never use that TAB key on your
keyboard?

Take care,
