i am having a problem with the hover link working in internet explorer v7, it works in all other browsers but not in IE7 here is the style sheet
a:hover {

	

	font-style: italic;

	color: #000033;

	text-decoration: underline;

}
 

a:active {

	

	font-style: italic;

	color: #FF9900;

	text-decoration: underline;

}
 

#nav {

	

	padding-top: 100px;

	padding-right: 20px;

	padding-bottom: 400px;

	float: left;

	border-right-style: solid;

	border-right-width: 1px;

	border-right-color: #0000CC;

	margin-top: 40px;

	margin-right: 30px;

}
 

#nav a:link {

	

	font-family: Georgia, "Times New Roman", Times, serif;

	font-size: 18px;

	font-style: italic;

	color: #000033;

	text-decoration: none;

	padding-top: 5px;

	padding-bottom: 5px;

	margin-right: auto;

}
 

#nav a:visited {

	

	font-family: Georgia, "Times New Roman", Times, serif;

	font-size: 18px;

	font-style: italic;

	color: #000066;

	text-decoration: none;

	padding-top: 5px;

	padding-bottom: 5px;

}
 

#nav a:hover {

	

	font-family: Georgia, "Times New Roman", Times, serif;

	font-size: 18px;

	font-style: italic;

	color: #000033;

	background-image: url(http://www.ormach.com/Images/Gradient.jpg);

	background-repeat: repeat-y;

	background-position: left;

	padding-top: 5px;

	padding-bottom: 5px;

	margin-right: auto;

}
 

#nav a:active {

	

	font-family: Georgia, "Times New Roman", Times, serif;

	font-size: 18px;

	font-style: italic;

	color: #FF9900;

	background-image: url(http://www.ormach.com/Images/Gradient.jpg);

	background-repeat: repeat-y;

	background-position: left;

	padding-top: 5px;

	padding-bottom: 5px;

	margin-right: auto;

}
 
 
 
 

and this is the web page calling it:
 
 

<link href="Styles/0-Global.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">
 
 

<!--[if IE]>

<style type="text/css" media="screen">

#menu ul li {float: left; width: 100%; z-index:100;}

</style>

<![endif]-->
 

<!--[if lt IE 7]>

<style type="text/css" media="screen">

body { behavior:url("csshover.htc"); }

#menu ul li {float: left; width: 100%; z-index:100;}

#menu ul li a {height: 1%;}

#menu a, #menu h2 {

}

</style>

<![endif]-->

place the a:hover clause after the a:active clause and see if that helps.

Disclaimer:  This is not something I can test, so please consider it a suggestion.

I would add the code snippet below the end of the a:active.  Actually, I might rewrite the CSS to exploit the cascade, but that may make it less acceptable to older browsers.

And I would try getting rid of that csshover.htc thing (copyright 2005) entirely!

        color: #000033;

        text-decoration: none;

        padding-top: 5px;

        padding-bottom: 5px;

        margin-right: auto;

Neither of those suggestions worked either.  If you would like to look at the site and see the problem in IE7,
go to www.ormach.com 

The navbar on the left side is what's causing all the trouble.

The table with the links was nested inside the #nav div.  When I took it out, all the links worked.  I still don't know how to fix the problem, but at least the links work for now.
