I have created a menu using the built-in menu control. I setup a skin and a style sheet.

On my sub menu, my menu background displays fine, but the text itself also has a mini version of the background. So I have a background within a background with the text inside the inner background.

Help me get rid of the background behind the text. I only want the actual sub menu background.

 <asp:Menu ID="menu1" SkinID="menuskin1" runat="server" DataSourceID="SiteMapDataSource1">
                                    </asp:Menu>

<asp:Menu runat="server" SkinID="menuskin1" DynamicEnableDefaultPopOutImage="false"
    StaticEnableDefaultPopOutImage="false" Orientation="Horizontal"
    MaximumDynamicDisplayLevels="2" StaticDisplayLevels="2">
    <StaticMenuItemStyle CssClass="menua" HorizontalPadding="8px"
        ItemSpacing="0px" Height="30px" />
    <DynamicMenuItemStyle CssClass="menub" HorizontalPadding="8px"
        Height="30px" />
    <DynamicMenuStyle HorizontalPadding="0px" />
    <StaticHoverStyle Height="30px" />
    <DynamicHoverStyle Height="30px" />
</asp:Menu>

.menub
{
    font-size: 13px;
    background-image: url(menubg.gif);
    color: #FFFFFF;
    font-family: Verdana;
    text-decoration: none;
    font-weight: Bold;
    text-align: left;
    border: 0;
    padding: 1;
}


.menub a:visited, .nav a:visited
{
    color: #FFFFFF;
    text-decoration: none;
}

.menub a:hover
{
    color: #c7cfeb;
    text-decoration: none;
}

I added a:link like so:

.menub a:link, a:visited
{
    color: #FFFFFF;
    text-decoration: none;
   background:none !important;    
}

And it caused all my other hyperlink background images to disappear. I even added important there....

.Logo
{
    display: block;
    width: 227px;
    height: 75px;
    background: url(logo.gif) !important;
}

It is called like this:
<a href="<%= ResolveClientUrl("default.aspx")%>" class="Logo"></a>

How do I fix that please?

ok... what you need to do is to give the links that don't need backgrounds a class. like this:

<a class="nobg" href="#">link</a>

then alter the styles above as follows:

.menub a.nobg:visited, .nav a.nobg:visited
{
    color: #FFFFFF;
    text-decoration: none;
    background:none !important;
}
 
.menub a.nobg:hover
{
    color: #c7cfeb;
    text-decoration: none;
    background:none !important;
}
