CSS Selectors


Below is my code. I have checked it many times and searched the forums. No luck. I keep getting an error message asking me if I've set the color of a:link to #008B45, which I have. Help, please.

a:link: {
text-decoration: none;
color: #008B45;
a:hover: {
color: #00FF00;
a: visited: {
color: #EE9A00;


you have a colon after link which shouldn't be there. a colon between the css selector (a) and the pseudo-class (link, hover, visited) yes, but not a colon after the pseudo class

Also, if you want hover to work on visited links place it after visited


@mabviro, they should be able to deduce that from my answer, yours just contain the code without explanation, which is not according to the guidelines


Thank you so much for the help!
