Apply a DHTML Effect to a Specific Style

Apply a DHTML Effect to a Specific Style

I have two different styles on my page: “content” and “small”. To avoid the “onmouseover…” lines within the tags, I defined the A:Hover line. Now if a user moves the mouse over a link, the text changes to red. The problem is that I want the red onmouseover effect only on the text with the “content” style. For the “small” style, I can’t seem to define its own onmouseover color.


You can define a specific style and give it a class name, and this technique applies to pseudo-classes such as A:hover:

Use the classes as follows:

test one

test two

Note that Navigator 4.x doesn’t support the hover pseudo class.
