i have been experiencing some major problems with the pseudo-classes
'a:link', 'a:hover', 'a:active' and 'a: visited'
 
i´ve tried to use them on some pages i´m building but the actions they
are supposed to execute just simply don´t happen
i know by a fact that NS 4 doesn´t implement 'a:hover' .... ok that
doesn´t shock me 
but the big thing is that IE 5 messes up all those references, if i put
all of them working on the document 'a: visited' takes control and the
document ignores all the other ones
on the other hand NS 6 works fine with everything but simply ignores
'a:visited' like it doesn´t exist, which it does
 
is this supposed to happen ??
 
i´ve checked the CSS drafts about pseudo-classes in
<http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-CSS1#pseudo-classes-and-pseudo-elements>
http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-CSS1#pseudo-classes-and-pseudo-elements
and it seems to be all OK about the use of anchor pseudo-class, maybe
something escape me because i´m not native in the english language
i'm puzzled ...
 
can somebody enlighten me !?!
