WCAG 2.0 AA Compliance

Section 2.4.7

Any keyboard operable user interface has a mode of operation where the keyboard focus indicator is visible.

By default this shouldn't be a problem, but if you wish to make your elements more apparent when focus is on them, such as a keyboard "tabbed" over it, use CSS to provide the focus properties:

.element-class a:hover, .element-class a:active, .element-class a:focus {
	background-color: #000000;
	color: #ffffff;

You also need to avoid removing the outline attribute from CSS. To be safe, make sure that your a:focus attributes for any <a> tag do not modify the outline or border properties.
