Problem with hover on display

I'm having problems trying to figure this out.  It's very simple and I can't see it!!!!

I have a table that looks something like this:
--------------------------------------
Address
Building Name
Crossing Street
---------------------------------------

What I want to do is just do a hover on the address.

Here's the code that I'm using:

echo "<tr>";
                        echo '<td style= "text-align:left"';
                        echo ' font color= "blue" class="Body_Labels">';
                              //Address
                              $work = "$ROW[ADDRESS]";
                              $work = trim($work);
                              $_SESSION['Data'] = $ROW['SEQ'].$ROW['STOREKEY'];
                        
                              echo '<a href="Space_Display.php?id=';
                                    echo $_SESSION['Data'];
                                    echo '">';
                                    echo "$work";
                              echo "</a>";

                              echo "<style>";
                                    echo "#left_Table a:hover{";
                                    echo "text-decoration:none;";
                                    echo "color:#0000FF";
                                    echo "}";
                              echo "</style>";                  
                              
                              $work = "$ROW[ADDRESS]";
                              $work = trim($work);

                              echo "<br>";
                              echo "$ROW[BNME]";
                        
                              echo "<br>";
                              echo "$ROW[CRST]";
                        
                              echo "<br>";
                              echo "</td>";

I know it's on the <href> but it hilights the address with a blue underline.

Thanks

Hover to do what?

This isn't valid
font color= "blue"
breeze351Author Commented:
By hover, I meant that when the cursor goes over the text it will change to blue rather than having text in blue with an underline.
GaryCommented:
An anchor tag will be blue and underlined by default, if you want to override the style then you have to add your own styles

a {
    color:green /* or whatever color it should be */
    text-decoration:none
}
a:hover {
    color:blue /* or whatever color it should be */
}

Ok, I'm a moron that needs help!!!!
I changed the code to read as follows:

                        echo '<td style= "text-align:left"';
                        echo ' font color= "black" class="Body_Labels">';
                              //Address
                              
                              $_SESSION['Data'] = $ROW['SEQ'].$ROW['STOREKEY'];
                                          
                                    // ****************************************************
                              // * Display Address                                  *
                                    // ****************************************************
                                    echo "<style>";
                                          echo "a ";
                                                echo "{";
                                                      echo "color:black";
                                                      echo "text-decoration:none";
                                                echo "}";
                                                
                                          echo "a:hover ";
                                                echo "{";
                                                echo "color:blue";
                                          echo "}";
                                    echo "</style>";
                                          echo '<a href="Space_Display.php?id=';
                                                echo $_SESSION['Data'];
                                                echo '">';
                                                echo "$ROW[ADDRESS]";
                                          echo "</a>";

I still end up with the address in an underline blue.

I'm not the greatest at this.  I just wish they would let me get back to the data side of this site.  That's what I'm good at.

Thanks
Glenn

Don't write styles inline - add them to your css file.
Have you got a link to look at?

Got It!!!!
Last question.
What is a:active as opposed to a:link?
