Hi,
This jQuery works in Chrome but not in IE 7 is there a reason why?
Is there a way to try my command from console as in Chrome?

$('a:link', $("label[for='P11_ORDER_NUMBER']")).css({"color":"red"});

$('a:link', $("label[for='P11_ORDER_NUMBER']")).css("color","red");

Thank you, Bill

Why << :link >> additionaly to << a >>?
Check this test page on IE7 : http://jsfiddle.net/M8LaL/2/

$('a', $("label[for='P11_ORDER_NUMBER']")).css({"color":"red"});

I'm not sure which version of jQuery you are using, but if you are trying to use jQuery 2 with IE 7, it is not guaranteed to work according to this page:
