Getting dotted line around .GIF image used in <A></A> tag

P: n/a
When I have my black backround for Body and my button is a round .GIF
image (actually image has round green button on black backround, whole
thing a rectangle), when I click on the button (hyperlink) a white
dotted line surrounds the rectangular gif with round button image in
the middle. How do I get rid of dotted white line on select of the
hyperlink?

You don't. That is an accessibility aid for keyboard users, so they can
tell where they are as they tab around the page. To remove it would make
it a usability nightmare for those users.

Just because you use a mouse to get around doesn't mean everyone does.
