Lawlz, cause they're not
Lawlz, cause they're not borders. It's called outline. If it's focussable, that means people can do something with it? Is is clickable? If so, what's happening on :hover? Replace outline with whatever else you want to let the keyboarders know where they're focussed on (you already know this I think).
outline: 0; worked!! The icons will be clickable. And I need to be using :active, not :focus. You are correct on both points.
