Hi,
can anyone tell how to hide the Brokers link in the table below using CSS?

Thanks.

      <div align="center">
        <table width="768"  height="50" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" bgcolor="#990000">
          <tr>
            <td width="96" class="navcell"><a href="index.php" class="nav">
            <font color="#D0C96C"><span style="display: block">Home</span></font></a></td>
            <td width="96" class="navcell"><a href="businesses-type-all-state-NSW.htm" class="nav">

            <td width="96" class="navcell"><a href="businesses-type-all-state-QLD.htm" class="nav">
            <font color="#D0C96C"><span style="display: block">Brisbane</span></font></a></td>
            <td width="96" class="navcell"><a href="brokers.php" class="nav">

            <td width="96" class="navcell"><a href="services.php" class="nav"> 
            <font color="#D0C96C"><span style="display: block">Services</span></font></a></td>
            <td width="96" class="navcell"><a href="contact.php" class="nav">

i dont know why your styles are inline, but if you want an inline style, apply this rule to whatever element you want to hide

style="display:none;"

Thanks for your help, much appreciated.

It's an old website and the above table is in hundreds of files, I was after a quick way to add something to a common CSS file to hide the  4th row, is this possible?

I don't want to spend time removing from hundreds of files as site will be updated shortly, my customer wants one page removed urgently.

With css you could do this:

.navcell a[href='brokers.php'] {
    display:none
}

Thanks Tom, that is almost perfect, is there a way to change the width to 0 as  <td width="96" is still taking up space?

You could hide the whole td if it's always the fourth td as long as there is only one row in the table.

.navcell:nth-of-type(4) {
    display:none
}

Older versions of IE will have trouble with this.

As a way to handle IE less than v9 you could add both rules.

.navcell a[href='brokers.php'] {
    display:none
}

.navcell:nth-of-type(4) {
    display:none
}

Then at least the link will be gone in older IE versions (though the td will still take up space).
