The dotted box is a Microsoft-typical accessibility feature: for people
who use the keyboard to navigate through a site.

If you really, really want to, you can get rid of it with
>>onfocus="this.blur();"<<, but I would not recommend that.

The 'prolonged' active state is a IE browser bug - click somewhere else on
that page and it returns to the normal 'visited' state.
