Heh, I feel a bit dumb now.  I figured :active was just for links.  
Working with browsers that don't support CSS properly has messed up my 
perspective.  LoL.  I was thinking though, would it be possible to 
apply the same sort of things to keyboard events?  This might be a 
little extreme, but maybe...?  It would involve figuring out which 
element would get the event, or maybe limit them to a subset of 
elements.  I dunno.  Haven't really thought it out, but I thought I'd 
just bring it up.
