    Question Color Change

    Greetings,
    At: www.walkincool.com/ScrollColor.html , For some reason I can't change the color. Although the code calls for "Orange" it is showing as "blue"
    Anyone see the mistake???

    Thanks,
    Jack

    Hi,

    You should put your <a> tag before <font> tag like:

    Code:
    <A href="mailto:King@Walkincool.com"><Strong><I><FONT FACE="Comic Sans MS" style="font
    
    -size:25pt" Font Color="orange">
    <STRONG>EMail</FONT></STRONG></A></TD>

    Your pages doesn't resolve, and I would try my best to avoid font tags if I were you, no matter the doctype (meaning whether it's allowed or not). I would also recommend using small case tags, for when you learn/implement XHTML properly

    Try something like:
    Code:
    <a class="or_link" href="http://www.myurl.com" title="My Document Name">e-Mail</a>
    And add to your stylesheet:
    Code:
    .or_link a{color: #hex; font-family: font-name; font-weight: bold; font-style: italic; tesxt-decoration: none;}
    .or_link a:hover{text-decoration: underline;}
    I could do the CSS better, but I won't confuse you! This should suffice for what you want to achieve, if it doesn't work the error is on my part for not marking up for so long! Please note, your font names should have a dash instead of a space

    Ah, though actually it should be: www.walkincool.com/scrollcolor.html (you had a colon after www).

    As the others mentioned, even though you may set the color, since it is a link it will use the color specified for links. You can use HTML and set your link color in the body tag: link="#yourcolor" or you can use CSS like pauly said and assign a class to it.

    Question Color Change

    Thanks to all for your help!
    There is something else on that page I would like to correct.
    At: www.walkincool.com/index2.html, there is a scroll with the word: "Email". It crosses over the words "Click Here".
    I am trying to get "Click Here" to function as a link as the words to the left and right of it do.
    When I remove the scroll it works. Is it possible to have both???

    Thanks again,
    Jack
