CSS TR hover in IE for child TD's

Hi Experts

Hopefully a very simple solution but I've been scratching my head with this for a couple of hours now!

I am using the code below to try and create a hover effect for an entire row. This seems to work fine in IE8 when the TD tags are transparent but mine aren't and I simply can't work out how to make the TR class override the TD class.

Would prefer not to use javascript at this point but certainly wouldn't dismiss it.

Many thanks
//CSS

.highlight:hover {background-color:#900;}

.tdMid {background-color:#E9E9E9;}

.tdLight {background-color:#F4F4F4;}
 

//HTML

            <tr class="highlight">

              <td align="center" class="tdMid">Data 1</td>

              <td align="center" class="tdLight">Data 2</td>

              <td align="center" class="tdMid">Data 3</td>

              <td align="center" class="tdLight">Data 4</td>

              <td align="center" class="tdLight">Data 5</td>

            </tr>

Try adding the following rule to your CSS. This will cause all of the TD's under the :hover to temporarily be transparent and let the background-color of the TR come through.
.highlight:hover td {background-color:transparent;}

Many thanks jessc7

I have added the suggested line which is getting closer but the underlying TR background-colour is always white now!

Feeling very thick today!! Any ideas
.tdMid {background-color:#E9E9E9;}

.tdLight {background-color:#F4F4F4;}

.highlight:hover {background-color:#900;}

.highlight:hover td {background-color:transparent;}

I know what those days are like!

I'm not exactly sure. When I view it locally, everything works fine. I've included my test HTML as well as a couple screenshots showing the off state and the hover state.

What DTD are you using?
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">

<html>

<head>

<title>Test</title>

<style>

.tdMid {background-color:#E9E9E9;}

.tdLight {background-color:#F4F4F4;}

.highlight:hover {background-color:#900;}

.highlight:hover td {background-color:transparent;}

</style>

</head>

<body>
 

<table>

<tr class="highlight">

<td align="center" class="tdMid">Data 1</td>

<td align="center" class="tdLight">Data 2</td>

<td align="center" class="tdMid">Data 3</td>

<td align="center" class="tdLight">Data 4</td>

<td align="center" class="tdLight">Data 5</td>

</tr>

</table>
 

</body>

</html>
