Is something like this valid CSS?

.linkleft a:link{
color: #5c1d07;
font-family: verdana;
font-size: 9pt;
text-decoration: underline;
}

.linkleft a:visited{
color: #5c1d07;
font-family: verdana;
font-size: 9pt;
text-decoration: underline;
}
.linkleft a:hover{
color: #B4370E;
font-family: verdana;
font-size: 9pt;
text-decoration: underline;
}

-------------------------------------

<a class="linkleft" href="blah.php">blah</a>

That's exactly what I'm using on my site and it's not working...
