I have the following code in an html file:

<style type="text/css">
     A.:link {text-decoration: none; color: #ffffff}
     A.:visited {text-decoration: none; color: #00ff00}
     A.:active {text-decoration: underline; color: #00ff00}
     A.:hover {text-decoration: underline; color: #ffff00}

When I view it in MSIE the  links behave as in the instructions.  However
when viewed with Netscape 4.6 it doesn't.  The colors don't change or form
an underline when the mouse is on the links.  The links do send you to the
correct url when clicked on.  I thought that Netscape 4 and higher browsers
were able to carry out these instructions.  The same thing happens when I
view other files with similar coding.  I checked the browser preferences and
enable style sheets is checked.  Is there another adjustment that I should
make to the netscape browser?  Thanks.
