I am trying to apply the below to my style sheet but it creates a green underline which when hovered over displays the following

Validation (css2.1): 'a' is not a know CSS property name

.Links
{
a:link { text-decoration: underline, font-size: 1em; }

it should be

a.Links:link
{
text-decoration: underline, font-size: 1em;
}
a.Links:hover
{
text-decoration: none; font-size: 2em;
}

The a and a:link will perform the same behavior.
I guess you are trying to style the links INSIDE your 'Links' div,  that has the class 'Links attached to.
<div class="Links"><a href="#">link</a></div>

Open in new window


in this case, this is the CSS:
.Links a:link {
	font-size: 1em;
	text-decoration: underline;
}
.Links a:hover {
	font-size: 2em;
	text-decoration: underline;
}

Open in new window
