(another) fqa for Rudy ;o)

it is there for a reason (a very important one)
<double underline>Accessibility accessibility acessibility</double

If you turn off the dotted line, users who use their keyboards to
navigate your site will be completely & utterly lost, as they will
have no idea where they are - because there is no dotted line.

Try navigating a site with the tab key, I did see a link once that
highlighted this very thing perfectly.  But of course I can't find it
right now.... (sorry)
