A:visited Css Safari not working

Hi

Im having some trouble getting my navigation and <a> tags to render properly in safari, after clicking the active state breaks the design, but i can seem to get the css right to hit it, im sure its really simple but i just cant get it.

1. If you click on a main nav link it goes bolder and this happens on all buttons until it breaks the nav.

2. If you click on the sub nav on the right it styles the links when i want them to stay in the a:link state.

The details ore in the attached CSS

Before i post the whole site it would be great if you could have a look over my css and see if there are any obvious mistakes!!

Many thanks

I have tried to apply that rule to the basic link,visited, hover and active css but it still wont work.

Would there be anthing else that would get in the way, would the above navigation css posted in the original question get in the way.

??

have put a version online at

http://clients.fruit-studios.com/example

Click on all the main nav links and you will see it break.

Then visit the residential page and click on the sub nav you will see that the visited status stays there.

Any suggestions
