template link color DW CS4

I have made a template in DW CS4 and my left nav buttons in orange (#f60) for link, and visited and white for active and hover. Hover state is the only state that should be underlined. When I create a page from this template all of my links are blue with underlines. I know there is a problem with the code but I don't know what it is. Do you?

Looks good to me, maybe because I don't have your external css file. Try to remove the line
<link href="../Styles/main.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"/>
and check.

I guess it iss a problem with the page that is created when you create a template... as this code works. Look at the code of the template page and see if it has the styles at the top. Perhaps post it here as well.
