Hello everyone,

I am new to using style sheets and would really appreciate some help.

I am simply trying to turn visited links another color. I am using Explorer
4.0 and Navigator Gold 3.0. to test my programs. I have included something
in the <BODY> tag to cater for Netscape and it works fine. In Explorer, the
active link will show as underlined but the visited link will not change

Here is a sample:


<STYLE TYPE="text/css">
     A:link {text-decoration: none; color: #0000CD; font-family: Arial}
     A:visited {text-decoration: none; color: #800080; font-family: Arial}
     A:hover {text-decoration: underline; color: #FF0000 font-family: Arial}


<BODY BGCOLOR="#FFE8BF" LINK="#0000CD" VLINK="#800080" ALINK="#FF0000">

Can anybody please tell me why it doesn't work. I really would appreciate

Many thanks,
