Inconsistent number of in-focus elements across different browsers

Have already created a test page

In Chrome/FF, when you open the page, you can see there is no current focused element which is expected.

But in IE8/9, you will see there is 1 focused element which is not expected. Furthermore, if you click on the text "Number of focus", you will see the focused element has been moved to 'BODY' element.

Is there a reason for this? Or it's a bug?

On browsers that don't support the CSS :focus selector we use document.activeElement to get the focused element. The two don't always agree but I don't think we can determine those cases. If you don't expect the body to be focused in your application, can you just ignore that?
