ZoomText 9.1 does this beautifully. You can download a demo from http://www.aisquared.com/zoomtext/more/download_zoomtext_trial/. Just set the magnification level to 1x.

Hi all,
I'm testing the accessibility of a web application that needs a lot of work.
Most of the focusable elements are NOT displaying differently, so I can't
tell where focus is when testing for keyboard only functionality. Until this
is fixed, is there a tool I can use to show where the focus is? This would
allow me to continue testing other aspects of the keyboard functionality
(e.g., tab order) much more easily.
