 Removing Focus Rect


IE5.5+ has <element hidefocus=true>
For others just focus on the window....

 Removing Focus Rect
Hi Vidar,

Thank you for responding to my posting.
However, I tried your suggestion and did not
have any affect. I know the function is being
called, because I placed an "alert" method in
the function and the alert box was displayed.

function killFocusRect()


<a href="./geninfo.htm" target="FRB" language="JavaScript"

Any ideas?

Thanks again,

This is how I solved a similar problem (took me a while to get it right):

    <script ... >
        IE4 = ((navigator.appName == "Microsoft Internet Ex... // you know
        function deFocus(objct) { if (IE4) { objct.blur(); }}


    <a href=# onClick=deFocus(this) ...><img src=test.gif ...></a>

I stripped out the unimportant parts for clarity.

Perhaps I should provide a working example instead... ;-)

        <script language="Javascript">
            function deFocus(objct) { objct.blur(); }

        <p>Click the links and see what happens</p>
        <p><a href=#>This will not defocus</a></p>
        <p><a href=# onclick=deFocus(this)>However, this will</a></p>
