Hi Christophe,

This rule remained in from initial testing:
.p7APM10 .p7APMtrig a:active, .p7APM10 .p7APMtrig a:focus {
outline: 1px dotted #ccc;

Removing it allows the user agent to use its default focus outline, which is
probably what we should have done. The other approach, of course, would be
to append the focus and active states to the hover selector.
