For the css hover link, the Governor and Director names on the header IE7 and IE8 work fine, however, it won't work in:  Safari, Firefox, Chrome, and Opera.

#GovDirLinks a:hover{
      font-weight:bold;
      font-size:small;
      color:#FF0;
}

I inserted:  /* Header name links */  into the css so that you can find it easier.  Not only does it not change color, but the mouse pointer is not turning into a hand.

It works in IE, but it won't work in Safari, Chrome, Firefox, or Opera.  What is stopping the other browsers from not seeing the <a href> link, and not changing color?

I moved it out of the CSS include and put in the <style> tags in the <head> section

The div.menu-area is covering up the links. Try this:

 
.menu_area {
display: none;
position: absolute;
width: 900px;
height: 180px;
right: 0px; 
padding:0; /* remove the padding at the top */
overflow: visible;
top: 90px; /* and position 90px down form the top instead */
}

Open in new window
