    I’m trying to use the DW library feature any getting strange problem. When I turn my nav bar into a library item them add it to a page the font color of my main bar is blue. This only happens on the top level of my menu. All other text color choices are obeyed. The css has the color set to white. Changing the color in the css has no effect on my ‘library menu’ but does work correctly in my non library linked pgs.
    Any thoughts?

    I can post some code but am not sure what to post or if that might help...

    Can you also post the file that includes the library item, and also the library item (nameofitem.lbi)?

    thanks raspberryh, So I think the problem is more general than the ‘library’. A page sampling the link color issue. Is the blue a default color?
    http://cellocelli.com/template.htm

    I’m noticing some other potential ‘default’ behavior that I don’t understand.
    In my linked css I have

    Code:
    a:link {
                              text-decoration: none; 
                  }
                  a:visited {
                              text-decoration: none;
                  }
                  a:hover {
                              text-decoration: none;
                  }
                  a:active {
                              text-decoration: none;
                  }
    Yet, IE6 underlines the bottom pg links. IE7 underlines only the bottom ‘STORE’ link.
    When I paste that code into the head of my .htm pg the underlines go away.
    Any idea why my css is being overlooked in these instances? The submenus all look correct except in IE6 in which they don’t work at all. AHHH….
    If you click on the top HOME link you see a page that has correct menu link color. ??
    Menu css

    Code:
    /* style the links for the top level */
      .menu a, .menu a:visited {
      display:block;
      font-size:11px;
      font-weight:bold;
      text-decoration:none; 
      color:#fff; 
      width:137px; 
      height:20px; 
      border:1px solid #fff; 
      border-width:1px 1px 0 0; 
      background:#758279; 
      padding-left:10px; 
      line-height:19px;
      }

    All elements have default properties whether with margins, padding or color.

    So ... yes ... the default color for links is blue and visited state is purple.

    thanks karinne,
    any idea why it would be choosing default color over my css? - only for the top level menu links?

    ps u look really young!
