Benoit, cheers, thanks for the feedback. If the next official Firefox version has the same 'feature' then I now know how to deal with it.

I want to use your naviagtion for IE6 but I've some problems. For example if you change the text between <em>Item one</em> into an image like <em><img src="testing.jpg"></em> it wount set the link by clicking on the image ...

Like your work but if you could help me it would be much more nice .. ;)

I made a simple nav and used your remove dotted border tut, it works great :). I did notice though that, at least in my particular case, you dont need a:active zeroed to make the border disappear, but only a:focus. (This was tested in FX and IE6.)

Can you explain a bit what its about?

Miha, I think that you are referring to IE6 and :active state. Sometimes IE6 will not show the dotted borders when using the mouse. But if you try 'tabbing' through the links on your page you will see that the dotted borders are still there.

looks like pretty cool stuff.

just to let you know that all your pages are erroring. the one i looked at was in ndlrt.html line 620 call to urchinTracker();

urchinTracker does not seem to be defined.

keep up the good work.

metamind, not sure what program you are using to check errors but urchinTracker() is a call to the google analytics js which is an external js file. This tracks all visitors movement and information to enable me to get a better understanding of web page requirements.
As such this is not an error,

Junior barnackles:-
Just a quick question about making the colour stick. At step 4 where you have changed the box colour to blue after the link has been clicked, how do you keep the box blue even if you click elsewhere on the page. As it is when you click it, it goes blue but when you click the page itself, it goes back to black.

Junior barnackles, the color change is generated by the first mouse click (:active/:focus state) but when clicking again this :active/:focus state is lost and the color reverts back. The only way to make the color stick is to load a new page with the menu item styled as though it was :active.

Yeah your active/focus removal doesn't work fro image buttons? I copied the same code you have listed here and no there were no positive results. Quite disappointing. Don't know what you did on this page but doesn't transfer.

JD, this does work with images as can be seen on this demonstration
You will need a standards compliant doctype though.
