So, basically hyperlinks (a with href), buttons, etc. should apply the :active state when clicked. As a general guide, :active should apply to those elements that can also recieve :focus. More tests are available for HTML (HTML 4.01), XHTML and XML (XHTML1.1). See the pseudo-class-active-* files here: http://www.lachy.id.au/dev/css/tests/css21/5-selectors/ Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to the test cases 2. Click on the green text Actual Results: :active is applied to the elements, but it shouldn't. Expected Results: The text should stay green.
