Firefox vs. IE - dotted outline to show element in focus

Hi all,
I am doing accessibility testing, but I'm not a developer. We have a
navigation bar with tabs... When focus is on a tab, I see the dotted outline
in IE but not in Firefox. Is there an easy way to code it so that the
outline appears in both browsers? Here is how it's currently coded:

<li><a href="">Name of tab<br/><span>Subname of tab</span></a></li>
