    Just starting... lvha problem

    For some reason my links only show as gray, even before I've clicked on them. Why? This is the code I'm using, so unvisited should be black:


    a:link {
    color: black;
    }

    a:visited {
    color: gray;
    }

    a:hover {
    text-decoration: none;
    color: white;
    background-color: navy;
    }

    a:active {
    color: aqua;
    background-color: navy;
    }

    Hi TheGildedYak, welcome to the forums.

    Have you cleared your browser's history between between each page view?

    What you have described will only delete temporary internet files, you need to specifically delete your history (as in the pages you visited) and this is usually kept separately in older versions of internet explorer or in IE7 and above, is marked under delete files as “history”.
