The hover will work in IE, but not in Netscape, how can I get it to work in both?

<STYLE TYPE="text/css">

<!--
A {
text-decoration: none;}
H1,H2,H3 {
font-family: Arial;
a:link {color: white;}
a:hover{color: blue;}
}
// -->
</STYLE>

As I am not an expert with style sheets, I had to do some research.  See if this helps:

I suggest this because I don't think NS supports hover but it does support onMouseover and onMouseout if they are placed in the anchor tag.

I tried it and it didn't work in netscape, there is a disclaimer at the top and said DHTML isn't suppored in Netscape.

I am sure there is a way to do it, but again, I don't know CSS very well.  

Sorry.

There's no way to di it for NN 4.X in CSS, but there is with JavaScript and DHTML!

Go to:

Did you follow ALL the instructions from the site to set it up, and not modify any of their code (except the links of course)?  If it's still giving you errors, could you provide a url of your code?  I can check it out for errors.

I played around with it and moved it to another site, http://virtual.ips.k12.in.us

I think I am missing something minor

jbark - again

I played around with it more, but the font isn't working correctly.  Is there a way for consistant Arial 12pt font in this that you are aware of?

Well, I guess it's on an intranet so there's no way of getting to it now, but you did fulfill the requirements of my question.

Thanks!
