sorry, what I mean of box is the border of the anchor tag...

What I want to do is to show the border of the anchor tag when you hover on it...

Let me know if I am still unclear. :)

i think i understand it now.

Just try after removing the border property from other anchor selectors other than a.menu:hover

That is, other than a.menu:hover, other anchor tag related selectors need not have the border property

It looks to me like you have the 'menu' in a <div> and you've set the height of the <div> too small so it clips the top and bottom borders.  Try increasing the height of the <div>.

Add a line-height to the CSS like below.
a.menu:link        
{  
        color:black;  
        text-decoration:none;  
	line-height: 26px;  
        border-right: solid 1px white;  
        padding:0 0 0 5px;  
        margin:0 0 0 0 5px;
