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
Glenn

Hover to do what?

This isn't valid
font color= "blue"

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.

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 */
}

Open in new window

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?
