[Home]How do I get rid of the dotted border when a linked image is clicked

HomePage | RecentChanges | Preferences | Newbie Help

The real question is, why do you want to get rid of this? The image fuzzy border is one of the more important accessibility items on the web. Many disabled users need that fuzzy border to navigate with a keyboard. It also signifies that the link in fact _has_ been clicked, as opposed to a mis-click.

You do not need such an exact pixel-perfect interface. There is something more important, usability. The most important aspect of your site is its usability. This is why Yahoo doesn't get rid of the fuzzy border and Amazon has spent millions on usability studies to get the maximum possible amount of sales.

There is no good way to get rid of the fuzzy border, and there is no reason to limit your visitors' ability to use your site.
