This outline could be considered to be present because the elements
match :focus.  I think MSIE for Windows interprets :active as the same
as :focus (although it doesn't implement :focus, I don't think).
However, the Netscape meaning of :active (matches while the element is
*being* activated) differs from :focus, and Mozilla/NS6 implements the
outlines as coming from :focus (which makes sense to me, especially
when tabbing through links / forms).
