Morning,

I know you were referring to impossible with CSS, but you can do it with JS. I have no idea if this would work in your guys particular case, but I recently put this together (with help as usual) to go with something I was working on. This gives focus to all browsers but Safari (Safari doesn't support tabindex on other than a couple tags).

Code:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">
<html><head><meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">
<script type="text/javascript" src="jquery/jquery.js"></script>
  <script type="text/javascript">
  $(document).ready(function(){
    $("li").focus(function () {
         $(this).addClass('focus');
    })
    $("li").blur(function () {
         $(this).removeClass('focus');
    })
   })
  </script>
<style type="text/css">
:focus, .focus {
         color:red;
}
</style>
</head>
<body>

<ul>
  <li tabindex="1">hello1</li>
  <li tabindex="2">hello2</li>
  <li tabindex="3">hello3</li>
</ul>

</body>
</html>
