    First post Firefox woes !!

    Hi,
    well i have stumbled through my own html mishaps for a little while now, everything working as it should, anyhow, this time round with my blog i find that my favorite browser has problems with it and i dont know what to do! It is a simple problem to look at - when i hover over a link it should highlight a red block behind it, as it does in safari only it doesnt in firefox, any suggestions?
    I am not sure as to which piece of code is the problem and if there is a workaround,
    if anybody could have a quick look at my source code?
    http://www.gabba.tv/blog.html
    I think it lies around line 362, where i am using the
    }

    .post h3 strong, .post h3 a:hover {
    color:#ffffff;
    }

    action...
    anyhelp would be so useful
    thanks in advance!

    Instead of:
    .post h3 strong, .post h3 a:hover {
    color:#ffffff;
    }
    I'd try:
    .post h3 , .post h3 a:hover {font-weight:bold; color:#fff;}
    I tried to find a "<strong>" in your HTML, and could not. Therefore, it appears you are using it incorrectly.
    Let me know what this is supposted to 'strong', -what word or phrase are you trying to 'bold' (which means "strong" in CSS)

    HTML:
    <p>This text is <strong>bold type</strong></p>
    CSS:
    <p>This text is <span style="font-weight:bold;">bold type</span><p>

    thanks Joel
    I will give it a go now,
    i dont know why it works with safari though and not firefox?
    although i know my main problem is in the way i learn.. piecing script together
    from diseperate sources will inevitably cause a system malfunction, i know theres a lot in there thats not supposed to be.. have i targeted the right piece of script though? it is not so much the change of font color when rolled over, more a solid background block which looks so good and works so well in safari... ?
    best
    Jay

    Well I still can't figure what this is or where it applies to... if you want the background-color to change on-hover,tthat is simple to do.

    .post h3 a:hover {background-color:red;
    color:#ffffff;
    }

    but I cannot find any class="post" or any h3 in your document... so, I am a bit lost too...

    In your embedded styles, the highlighted "#" should not be there - it is used to denote a hex number following.
    Code:
    a:hover {
    	text-decoration: none;
    	background-color:#red;
    	color: #FFFFFF;font-size:110%;
    }

    Centauri you got it working )
    that was all that firefox seemed not to like! I wish i could spring clean all the junk out of my page scripting it would take an expert at that, I will try, and at least this way with your help everything works as it should...

    I missed that. It's usually the simple things that are the brain-busters, eh?
