    CSS navbar rollovers break in IE

    Hello,

    Can anyone tell me why these CSS rollovers don't return to the normal state in IE? Here's the link

    Here's the code:

    <html>
    <head><link href="style.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" /></head>
    <body>
    <div id="mainnavbar"><ul><li><a href="../index.html">Home</a></li><li><a href="#">Link 1</a></li><li><a href="#">Link 2</a></li><li><a href="#">Link 3</a></li><li><a href="#">Link 4</a></li><li id="portallink"><a href="#">Link 5</a></li></ul>
    </div>
    </body>
    </html>

    CSS:

    a:link, a:visited {
    font: bold 10px Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
    color: #666;
    text-decoration: none;
    }
    div#mainnavbar {
    background-color: #666;
    width: 750px;
    padding: 0;
    height: 20px;
    margin: 1px 0;
    }
    div#mainnavbar ul {
    list-style-type: none;
    padding: 0;
    text-align: center;
    margin: 0;
    }
    div#mainnavbar ul li a, div#mainnavbar ul li a:visited {
    color: #CCC;
    display: block;
    height: 20px;
    line-height: 20px;
    padding: 0;
    margin: 0;
    width: 125px;
    }
    div#mainnavbar ul li {
    float: left;
    }
    div#mainnavbar ul li a:hover, div#mainnavbar ul li#portallink a:hover {
    text-decoration: none;
    color: #333;
    background-image: url(images/bg_drk.gif);
    width: 125px;
    margin: 0;
    padding: 0;
    }



    Thanks!

    I have no idea what's causing that, however, there is a work-around.

    Code:
    div#mainnavbar ul li a, div#mainnavbar ul li a:visited {
      padding: 0px;
      display: block;
      margin: 0px;
      width: 125px;
      color: #ccc;
      line-height: 20px;
      height: 20px;
      background-color: #666;
    }
    div#mainnavbar ul li {
      float: left;
      background-image: url(images/bg_drk.gif);
    }
    div#mainnavbar ul li a:hover, div#mainnavbar ul li#portallink a:hover {
      padding: 0px;
      background-color: transparent;
      margin: 0px;
      width: 125px;
      color: #333;
      text-decoration: none;
    }

    Design/program for Firefox (and/or Opera), apply fixes for IE, not the other way around.

    Just add:
    Code:
    #mainnavbar ul li a, #mainnavbar ul li a:visited {
        background:#666;
    If you change the :hover background the 'normal' state has to be changed too.

    Selectors with id are unique, so don't require any tags before them. It only slows the css parsing.
    Not div#mainnavbar ul li a but #mainnavbar ul li a
    Not div#mainnavbar ul li#portallink a:hover but #portallink a:hover
