I have a class for a navigation link table called "link_td" along with a another pseudo class for the anchor tags as follows (all anchor tags are contained within <TD></TD> tags):

.link_td {font-size: 8pt; color: #FFFFFF;}
.link_td a {font-size: color: #000000;}
.link_td a:hover {color: #FF0000;}

My question is, how do I add to the ".link_td a:hover" class to include the alteration of the <TD> tag such as a background-color change? In other words, when the user hovers over the <A></A> tag, I want the background color of the <TD></TD> to change.

Thanks in advance,
