IE woes: links

[SIZE=”2″]IE (9,8,7 thru Parallels on a Mac) is not, or only partially, rendering styles on certain links; same behaviour across the versions:

[FONT=”Courier New”]a[href^=”javascript”] {
text-decoration:underline; font-size:inherit; color:white; }
a[href^=”javascript”]:hover {background:#486; }[/FONT]
—neither the underline nor the hover background are rendered, and the color is the same as surrounding text, so the links are not apparent: but they work;

[FONT=”Courier New”]a[href^=”http://”], a[href^=”https://”] {
text-decoration:underline; font-size:inherit; color:#bdbebf;}
a[href^=”http://”]:hover, a[href^=”https://”]:hover {background:#468; }[/FONT]
—the hover background doesn’t work; the links work.

Quirksmode says IE should honour these advanced attribute styles.

This isn’t the only IE problem I’m having, [URL=”http://www.wavehands.net/changes.htm”]but one at a time[/URL]—click on “welcome” to see the problem.

Cheers.[/SIZE]

[/SIZE]The scrolling does work in IE. The validator picked up a misspelling of 'overflow':
<i>
</i>/* text window controlled by scroll links and its background layer */ #wn, #wnbg { position:absolute; left:128px; top:50%; width:264px; height:60em; margin-top:-30em; overf1ow:hidden; }

@ctozauthorFeb 11.2012 — Thanks for that. The scrolling does work in IE[/QUOTE]

Can you clarify?

Thru Parallels, yes, the scrolling also works—if you know where to put the mouse: but the arrows aren't displayed, only a thin white line. That's another display problem I'm trying to solve without recourse to the boards.

Is this the same with your test?

In IE8 tha arrows do appear in the right place and operate the scrolling, albeit rather notchy.

Thanks: thought I might make life simpler with Parallels, but...

Success!
