Problem with 'Alternate URL' Text Highlighting

Poster: heme
Dated: Thursday October 24 2002 - 6:12:16 BST

I am setting up a menu using the PlaceMenu() function. The main menu's background color is set to transparent.

The problem occurs when I add an alternate url to any of the main menu items. When the mouse is over any of the main menu items the background color of that item's text is highlighted(not the background itself but the text's background). This problem only occurs in IE.

I have triple checked my colors and I don't believe that is causing the problem. If any one has experienced this problem, or has any insight, I would appreciate your help.

Thank you,

Hi Eric,

Have you defined a general a:hover pseudo-class (e.g. in a .css file), with a background-color property, that you use for the <a> links in your html? I seem to recall that, some time ago, I noticed my own main menu items picking up the background color I had defined in an a:hover pseudo-class.


Thank you

That was the problem exactly. Thank you so much for your help Kevin.
