Hover not working

Im trying to get hover working on one of my DIVs, so when the user hovers over the question, the entire DIV is highlighted, to indicate both the question and the answer.

I know I can do it Javascript, but thought it would be just as easy in CSS. I thought I could just use ".divClass:hover", but obviously Im missing something.

My CSS code is:-
<style type="text/css">
	body { text-align: center; }
	
	#surveyTitle { width: 100%; height: 200px; text-align: center; font-size:30px; padding-bottom:30px;}
	#surveyContent { width: 600px; height: 300px; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; text-align: left; }
	#surveyFooter { width: 100%; height: 100px; text-align: center; padding-top:30px; }
	
	.question_content { width: 600px; height: 90px;	float: left; }
	.question_content:hover { background-color:red } 
	.question {	width: 600px; height: 5px; }
	.answer { width: 500px; float: left; margin-left: 20px; }
	.answerGroup { width: 250px;	float: left; }
</style>

Open in new window




And then one of the sections is:-
	<div class="question_content">
		<div class="question">How long have you been working for the company?:</div>
		<div class="answer">
			<div class="answerGroup"><input type="radio" name="Q3" value="Less than 1 year">Less than 1 year</div>
			<div class="answerGroup"><input type="radio" name="Q3" value="1-2 Years">1-2 Years</div>
			<div class="answerGroup"><input type="radio" name="Q3" value="2-5 Years">2-5 Years</div>
			<div class="answerGroup"><input type="radio" name="Q3" value="5-10 Years">5-10 Years</div>
			<div class="answerGroup"><input type="radio" name="Q3" value="More than 10 years">More than 10 years</div>
		</div>
	</div>

Open in new window



Thought it would be simple, obviously not! :-S

Any ideas what Im doing wrong?

at first sight this should work, did you put a document declaration in your html code?
(xhtml strict/transitional / html ...)
