Discussion on: Do you often use border property to figure out and focus elements in CSS

Thats a nice litte trick with the '?'. BUt I would also use 'outline' as it is not added to the dimension of the object.

Note: Outline differs from borders! Unlike border, the outline is drawn outside the element's border, and may overlap other content. Also, the outline is NOT a part of the element's dimensions; the element's total width and height is not affected by the width of the outline. Source:

But is there an easy way of adding an outline to ALL components? Or all div, p, table or whatever?
