    Hover effect

    I would like to be able to do this.
    When I move my mouse over a <div> it will change the background color from orange to yellow.
    Sorry if this sounds too simple but I'm Not sure where I'm going wrong...

    I tried wrapping the whole <div> in a <a href="#"></a> but it only highlights the text, not I wanted.
    I would like to change the background color of the triangle 255x60 px from orange to yellow when I hover over it.
    Here's my code:

    HTML Code:
    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <html>
    <head>
    <style>
    #project{
    	background-color:orange; 
    	width:255px;
    	height:60px;
    	padding:10px;
    	text-decortation:none;
    }
    #project a:hover {
    	background-color:yellow;
    }
    </style>
    </head>
    
    <body>
    	<div id="project">
    		<b>VESTIBULUM TINCIDUNT</b><br>
    		Ut wisi enim ad minim veniam, quis nos- trud exerci tation ullamcorper suscipit.
    	</div>
    </body>
    </html>

    	text-decortation:none;
    }
    #project:hover {
    	background-color:yellow;
    }
    </style>
    </head>
    
    <body>
    	<div id="project">
    		<b>VESTIBULUM TINCIDUNT</b><br>
    		Ut wisi enim ad minim veniam, quis nos- trud exerci tation ullamcorper suscipit.
    	</div>
    </body>
    </html>

    minor side note unrelated to your actual issue -- you have what appears to be a heading, why are you using a bold tag?

    Also, beware that :hover on anything other than an anchor doesn't work on really old versions of IE -- if you care. You can use this to fix that:

    But really with IE7/earlier heading out the door, it might not be worth the effort for a minor visual effect.

    Though if that hover is actually going to do something like be a link that goes somewhere, put an anchor inside that DIV and keep the BOLD tag... though that would mean you can't get a proper heading in there or paragraphs around the text.
