    Question CSS text link underlining is ignored in all browsers

    This will probably be very simple for the CSS geniuses out there

    On this page http://hosting.geoorbis.com/geoorbis/partners.html there are two external links in the body of the text

    The first link (VT Caribbean) ignores my CSS textlink code of

    A.textlink:link {
    color:#D00000;
    font-size:10px;
    font-family: geneva, helvetica, san serif;
    letter-spacing: 1px;
    border-bottom: 1px dotted #D00000;

    The second (Data Transfer Solutions) adheres to it

    Problem is, the first is a regular HTML link and I can force the link to open in a new window. The second link is javascript and I can't get the link to open in a new window.

    Can anyone figure out why the CSS is ignored by the regular HTML link?

    Thanks

    This is indeed odd

    Thanks Spike,

    After some more poking around I found that setting the :visited CSS with the same underline code makes it work in all browsers

    See I knew someone would help me figure it out

    Cheers - BTW I am in Barbados - cold where you are?

    One more ? for you - in IE/Win my new paragraphs are not nicely spaced like they are in any other browser

    If I use 2 <br>'s after each line, however then my paragraphs are too far apart in other browsers

    How can I get IE to put one line space between my paragraphs without mucking up the layout in other browsers
