I am just trying to change the color on a link hover.   For some reason it isn't working for me this time...   The border below works just fine but the color doesn't change.
<A HREF="boarding.htm" class="mini">Boarding</A>

a.mini  {
color: #334755;
text-decoration:none;	
}

a.mini:hover {
color: #B50025;
text-decoration:none;
border-bottom-style:solid;
border-bottom-width:thin;
border-bottom-color: #B50025;
}

It changed for me in FF 6 and IE 8. In IE 7 the border doesn't show up. What browser are you looking at?

Instead of giving the link a class of MINI, can you give the DIV (or the P, or wherever your link lives, or even an SPAN) a class of MINI and then try this:

.mini a  {
color: #334755;
text-decoration:none;	
}

.mini a:hover {
color: #B50025;
text-decoration:none;
border-bottom-style:solid;
border-bottom-width:thin;
border-bottom-color: #B50025;
}

:hover sometimes causes annoying little bus here and there if it isnt directly ties to an "a:"

Hope that helps.

Not all versions of IE support :hover

You can always add this little js you your head to get IE to support a bunch of HTML5 and CSS3 stuff - very handy.

 
<!--[if lt IE 9]>
    <script src="http://html5shim.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/html5.js"></script>
    <script src="http://ie7-js.googlecode.com/svn/version/2.1(beta4)/IE9.js"></script>
    		<![endif]-->

This works fine for me

<html>
<style type="text/css">
a.mini  {
color: #334755;
text-decoration:none;	
}

a.mini:hover {
color: #B50025;
text-decoration:none;
border-bottom-style:solid;
border-bottom-width:thin;
border-bottom-color: #B50025;
}
</style>
<body>
<A HREF="boarding.htm" class="mini">Boarding</A>
</body>
</html>
