    OUTLINE property of CSS

    Can anyone explain this to me a little...as i understand it, an outline is a border that hovers OVER an html element that doesn't impact the layout of the page. this true? sounds cool to me.

    that link is precisely where i discovered the existence of this property...i can't get outline stuff to show up in IE. it sounds super handy to me.

    does it show up in real browsers? its likely that IE just doesn't support it.

    but IE is a real browser...

    like it or not, most people use it--at LEAST twice as many people as mozilla:

    it may be a widely used browser, but that doesn't make it real

    Since it screws it up a border-top doesn't impact the page layout in IE either. Try text-decoration: overline.
