The IE :focus issue is on a larger list of issues I put a list together -- 
what an author must do when developing cross-browser key navigable

IE7 doesn't support the :focus pseudo-class at all. However, its 
implementation for :active acts as if it were :focus (but only works on 
links -- not form controls or other focusable elements).

I wrote tests and filed bug reports to Microsoft about this for IE7, but 
unfortunately it wasn't fixed.
