Our current user Agent note for C15: Using CSS to change the
presentation of a user interface component when it receives focus says
"Internet Explorer 7 does not support :focus styles for elements other
than hyperlinks."

Should this be changed to say "Internet Explorer 7 does not support
:focus styles for elements other than hyperlinks and form controls."

Another apparent bug in IE 7 is that it does not support :focus CSS
psuedo element for non-link or non-form control elements, so basically
most ARIA type elements.

See example:

sorry for the long url.

Try if FF and then try in IE and notice the difference in styling as
keyboard focus is changed.
