Color Stuck on Black for Navigation Main Menu items

see:

http://www.himalayanacademy.com/readlearn

Note the color of the main menu items at the top... this is.

#8C3945  

we are working on a new navigation scheme

see:

http://dev.himalayanacademy.com/readlearn

The color is (or should be) is set in the CSS on line 1094 here:

.nav-global .nav-parent > li {
	color: #8c3945;
	padding: 0 22px;
	height: 40px;
}

Open in new window


But, somewhere this is being clobbered by a later more specific selector that is turning it black...or wiping the setting which defaults to black (because no where do we set color to rgb(0,0,0,) for any type)

But I can't see where. I have looked at it until my eyes "are bleeding" but still don't see it.

Can you?

Line 1123 according to Firebug. It's not rgb(0,0,0) but it's close to black.

.nav-global .nav-parent > .nav-header > a {
    color: #352f29;
}

The rule

.nav-global .nav-parent > .nav-header > a {
    color: #352f29;
    padding-top: 8px;
}

Open in new window


on line 1123 is what is being applied.  Since it is later in your CSS file it is overriding your other rule.

Thank you both... who responded with 2 minutes of each other...so I split the points.

 I removed that  color: #352f29;  and it works! Gotta start doing this work in the morning instead of the end of the day...
