I am trying to attach a class to the first link in an unordered list, but I can't seem to get it to work. Can someone take a look at the code below and see if I have any errors?


The jQuery Call
Code:
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://jqueryjs.googlecode.com/files/jquery-1.2.6.pack.js"></script>
From my custom script
Code:
// Begin Javascript 
$(document).ready(function(){
    $("#menu ul li a:first").addClass("itemhover");
});
The HTML
Code:
<div id="menu">
   <ul>
     <li class="first">Select User</li>
     <li><a href="#invite"><span>Bill</span></a></li>
     <li><a href="#invite"><span>George</span></a></li>
     <li><a href="#invite"><span>Tom</span></a></li>
   </ul>
</div>
