Hi all,

I have set a couple of rollover pictures as buttons using
Dreamwaever 4...
When I click on one of these buttons the explorer
displays the linked page but when I am back to the pevious page the button (the picture) is framed with a
dotted line.
The question might be stupid but how can I avoid this ??

Sounds like explorer is trying to show you what links youve visited. It probably doesnt occur in all browsers so i wouldnt sweat it.

As WEED said there is nothing you can do about it. It is just a property of explorer that it will highlight the current link with focus with a dotted line. You will find the same with text also. So there is no need to worry about it.

do this with your links..

<a href="nextpage.html" onfocus="this.blur()">your link</a>

I read something about blur() but I did'nt know where
to insert it. I was afraid it only concerned forms.

Thanx a lot,
