When I implemented a pull-down menu, it wiped out the default, anchoring color schemes. When I changed the pull-down menu to blue text, my anchored text showed blue again. How do you suggest I separate these two items?
If you want the custom styles set for the A tag to only appear on the menus, change the A and A:hover to A.menu and A.menu:hover.
With this change, your normal anchor colors will show up everywhere but on the pull-down menus.
