build 2000120708, MacOs 9.0.4-D: If an anchor element contains an image, the defined style rules for ':active' are not triggered if you click on the image. If the anchor contains text _and_ an image, klicking the text triggers the CSS-action for both. Example: <a href="uri1">some text <img src="uri2"></a> You may check this at <http://www.subotnik.net> with the Link "MacFAQ" aside the banner near the bottom of th page. Defining the rule for :active, :active IMG, :link:active, a:active, ... makes no difference.
Seems like this is not only a CSS issue. Even with plain 'HTML 4 transitional'images hover to textcolour if you first touch them and don't react on activation. I created a simple testcase to illustrate this: <http://www.subotnik.net/test/a-img-1.html>
Summary: CSS :active has no effect on images that are links → images that are links don't activate
cc'ing dbaron as the test case is his

Netscape's standard compliance QA team reorganised itself once again, so taking remaining non-tables style bugs. Sorry about the spam. I tried to get this done directly at the database level, but apparently that is "not easy because of the shadow db", "plus it screws up the audit trail", so no can do...
