I have the following HTML code
<div class="arc-article">
<div id="BehindScenes"><a href="http://digital.faithtoday.ca/faithtoday/20140102#pg7">
<h3>Behind<span class="text-maroon">TheScenes</span></h3>...

Open in new window


and the following CSS code

.arc-article a:visited,
.arc-article a:link,
.arc-article a:active {
	text-decoration: none;
	color: #000;
}

.arc-article a:hover{
	text-decoration: none;
	color: #666;
}

.text-maroon {
	color: #9b373f;
}

Open in new window


When I hover, the h3 tag gets the correct #666 color, but I want the span tag to also get the hover over affect.  I understand why it's happening, but how do I target the text-maroon class to hover the same #666 color?

How do I target span class

Hi dauyeung, if you target the span that's within the anchor, you should be able to change the colors. I have set up an example here: http://jsfiddle.net/Lxck3/

.arc-article a:hover,
.arc-article a:hover span {
	text-decoration: none;
	color: #666;
}
