a.black:hover,a.black:active
{
    color:white;
    background:black
}

 <table width="100%" cellpadding="2" cellspacing="0">
           <tr><td class="leftNavFormat"><a class="black"  href="Default.aspx">Home</a></td></tr>
 </table>

<td></td>. How can do that?

Do you have a test page that you are working on that might contain the rest of your CSS?
Are you trying to make the black background colour that shows on the hover state fill the entire td that is wrap around your link?
Try
a.black:hover,a.black:active
{
    color:white; 
    background:black;
	display:block
}

There is no 'parent' selector in CSS, so you can't target the TD tag when you hover over the A tag (not with CSS anyway - you could it with jQuery!)

Neil's on the right track - you will need to make the A tag fill the TD and then your CSS hover code will highlight the A tag, filling the TD :)

You may want to style the A tag to display:block in it's default state, rather than just on hover and active otherwise you may have some 'jumps' when you hover.

Spot on Chris.
Again, a test page showing us the css you have used for your table will help us a a lot.
