Link is active, but not visible in IE8


Recommended Posts

This is my first site (I'm using dreamweaver cs4) and I have a simple link to another page within my site that is rendered invisible, though active. It is visible in chrome and firefox. Browser Compatibility detects no issues.

I'm not seeing any issues when I test the code. Perhaps you need to post your comingSoon.css stylesheet as well?


BTW, this section


bgcolor="#99C" text="#99C" link="#99C" vlink="#99C" alink="#99C" 

should be removed -- this needs to be set using CSS, not within the HTML.


Wow, I removed that line on the body div and tried it again. Co


uld that really be what ie8 didn't like?
