View Full Version : Font styling problem

02-12-2004, 08:21 PM
I'm displaying a list of categories stored in MySQL and I've been trying to format the text using several methods, however, they do not work. The text is currently plain, black. I have this in my <head> tags.
<style type="text/css">
a.menu {
text-decoration: none;
color: white;
font-family: "arial";
font-size: 9pt;

} </style>Before the code to list the categories starts, I have <div class="menu">, and then of course </div> after the code ends.

I have even tried setting the text color of the page in Dreamweaver via Page Properties, but that does not work either.

"a.menu" works on anchor text. If the text isn't linked then that's probably why it's not displayed like you want. Try ".menu".

The styling works for any text on the page, it just is not working for the categories links.

What happens when you remove the "a" in your <style>?

Well, the size and font type is working fine, however the color is not working.

Try using the hex color value. For white:

color: #ffffff;

Nope, tried, still doesn't work. Here's part of my code:

<font face="arial" color="#FFFFFF">
<? echo('<a href="/cat/' . $pid .'/">'. $name . '</a>'); ?></font><br>
<? } ?>If you notice that a in there, it is applying white to it, but where I am echoing the variables, it is not.
