the a:focus class does not show on links.
Test clicking items in the menu. They are left bold when clicked in ff2/3, explorer7, omniweb 5.7 etc.

Added a reduction. A better title for this bug might be: Link doesn't receive focus when clicked. Maybe this is intentional?
By the way, IE 7 ignores :focus but uses the pseudo class :active as if it was :focus.
Its not intentional for this site, since I made it.
Thanks! Its not intentional for this site, since I made it.
This bug also occurs in Safari / Windows. Links only receive focus with TAB key navigation (if this option is activated).
In both Firefox and Opera, links receive focus when activated.
In IE, a:focus doesn't work. Instead, a:active works after mouseup.
This is a request in order to implement some kind of cross-browser ":onclick"
I also confirm this bug. It still happens in latest stable release Safari 4.0
Focused links with mouse-clicking does not render outline borders.
This also affects CSS rules like:
CSS2 Test Suite (draft): 5.11.3 :active, :hover, and :focus from Eric Meyer
CSS 2.1 Conformance test suite (section 5.11.3 focusing links):
IE 8 supports a:focus.
Uncomfirmed? "Well known" would be more like it.
See, for example, Stu Nicholls:
"This use the :active and :focus states to hold a clicked image on the page until another mouse click is made, but Safari and Google Chrome handle mouse clicks in a different way to other browsers so the image will only stay on screen in these two browsers whilst the mouse key is held down,"
This bug doesn't just apply to OSX10 - I'm on windows XP and windows vista.
