li hover background url code not working IE for my nav mouseovers.  It works in FF, but not in IE7.
You can test it here
http://216.83.111.120/awn-oscmax

Just mouseover the top nav buttons...ie. Home, contact us etc.

In FF, the BG image loads but in IE it doesn't.  Below is the code I'm using which is not working.

I was just wondering if someone could let me know what the right code is.  I've searched all over the web to no avail.

Thanks!
ul#toplinks li:hover
{
	background:url(images/top_li_hover_bg.jpg);
    background-repeat: repeat-x;
}

Internet explorer does not support :hover on any tags other than the <a>

You could choose for using <li onmouseover="this.className='hover'" onmouseout="this.className='';"> and use li.hover instead.

Ok, i added this to the php <li> tag and it;/'s not working:

'<li onmouseover="this.className=\'hover\'" onmouseout="this.className=\'\';"><a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_DEFAULT) . '"><span>Home</span></a></li>'

Ok, I changed that, now neither browsers are working.

This is what I have in CSS:

div#toplinks
{
	margin:10px auto auto 10px;
}
 
ul#toplinks
{
	width:100%;
	height:40px;
	background:#FAFAFA url(images/top_ul_bg.jpg) repeat-x;
	list-style:none;
	padding:0px;
	margin:0px;
}
 
ul#toplinks li
{
	float:left;
	padding-right:15px;
	padding-left:15px;
	background:url(images/top_li_bg.jpg) no-repeat top right;	
}
 
ul#toplinks li.hover
{
	background:url(images/top_li_hover_bg.jpg);
    background-repeat: repeat-x;
 
}
 
ul#toplinks li a
{
	display:block;
	text-decoration:none;
	color:#2667C1;
	font-weight:bold;
	margin-top:14px;
	
}
 
ul#toplinks li a:hover{ color:#000000; 	text-decoration:underline	}
/* end page layout */
