IE 7 and :focus styles

Hey,

I'm hopefully wrapping up development on the responsive version of the studios.fluidproject.org very soon. We're nearly there. And in my struggles with IE we've come across an interesting dilemma. In IE 7 there is no support for either the :focus pseudo class or the outline property <http://www.quirksmode.org/css/contents.html>. Thereby making any custom styles (read: undeniable indication that's what it represents) for keyboard users very tricky. There are default styles attributed to keyboard actions, but they are woefully underwhelming. And short of additional Javascript, for which I'm hardly qualified to implement, I'd be open to any advice or help for this problem. Cos it is a problem. Thanks.

Johnny
