Please note. I get a few hundred emails a week from visitors asking for help, or posing questions on how to modify my demos to suit their application and I read them all. Unfortunately I only have a limited amount of time to spend answering these questions.

So if I do not reply, please do not be offended, and if I do reply then you are one of the lucky ones.

Stu, this relates a lot to what I've been working on recently. I'm confident you'll grasp the concept right away --

Drew, an interesting and very detailed piece of work, congratulations. It's a pity that javascript has to be used to generate the html/css as this can be turned off. I would much rather see php as the generator. Hope it gets some recognition.

I used PHP previously. As mentioned, the output was 71k. I have yet to determine if that *actually* affects page load time - that's next up on my to-do list, real world testing with a 56k, script language vs script language :)

I'm collaborating with a friend in an attempt to write a Java or online app that would scan a monochrome image and generate such a map. Could turn into something popular.

I'd been wondering about this for a while. I found a way to do it for the Windows Explorer, but now I can put it in my web pages (well, only in some cases where the dotted box really bothers me). Thanks!

Hi Stu, two things.

First off, you are amazing with CSS. Your site is filled with goodies that many people didn't know were possible :)

Secondly, I'm wanting to have the focus border NOT SHOW for regular links -- Fooled around with the code a bit last night, but I couldn't seem to get it. Any chance you could help me out?

I'm trying to get the focus border off of regular links, NOT in a UL list/LI. Thanks a ton!

Hi Ben, not possible for inline links as this method requires absolute positioned inner text in a relative positoned outer link and the size of the link needs to be specified.
Inline links do not have a width value and using position absolute without a width will just collapse the text so that it overlaps the rest of the line.

BTW it CAN be done using outline:0; /* for browsers that understand */
