Default Bookmark Style

I have a menu set up on my eBay AboutMe page.

This is the Style that I have:

a.white { color: #FFFFFF; text-decoration: none; font-weight:bold }
a.white:link { color: #FFFFFF}
a.white:visited { color: #FFFFFF}
a.white:hover { color: #FFFFFF}
a.white:active { color: #FFFFFF}

I works fine on the second line of my menu (which links to external pages) but the first line of the menu links to bookmarks on the current page.

<td class="td5"><a class="white" href="#AboutMe">About Me</a></td>
<td class="td5"><a class="white" href="#CJMGraphics">About CJM Graphics & Photo Restoration</a></td>
<td class="td5"><a class="white" href="#Payments">Payments</a></td>
<td class="td5"><a class="white" href="#Policies">Policies</a></td>
<td class="td5"><a class="white" href="#Communications">Communications</a></td>

The problem is that the '#' seems to be overriding the Style instruction and the default color disappears in the the background that I am using.

This doesn't happen in Netscape or Firefox but it does happen in IE 6.

Any thoughts....

I'm not too familiar with eBay, but I think "your" page is just a part of "their" page, is that right? If so, maybe their style rules override yours.

Could you show the page? Would make it easier to trouble shoot.

If it is the case that the styles are being overridden then using the !important rule could be a solution. http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-CSS2/cascad...mportant-rules

Incidentally try to avoid class names that are descriptive of style i.e. class="whiteBold" and try to make them descriptive of the class function i.e. class="menu".
