    Question CSS makes link jump?

    Somehow my css is making links move when they are clicked on - at least in IE5. Doesn't happen on newer versions of IE.

    Example: A line of text 3 inches long is a link. When it is clicked on it pulls to the right and stacks into three one-inch lines of text.

    I am new to CSS and can't see any reason for this - any ideas?

    I enclosed the css file I am using - most of the categories haven't even been filled out yet.

    Thanks in advance,
    Stephen

    you said you enclosed the css file you are using but where is it? Perhaps if you had a link to where the problem was happening it would be easier to diagnose.

    Problem solved!!

    hmm. I thought I attached the css file, but I guess it didn't have a valid extension.

    Anyway I figured it out -

    I changed these lines:
    a:visited {text-decoration: none}
    a:active {text-decoration: none

    to this:
    a:visited {text-decoration: none;}
    a:active {text-decoration: none;}

    (The semicolon and closing brackets)


    Thanks though.
