    An example of browser discrepencies I could use some 'splain'n on

    http://tugbucket.net/tests/firstline.html

    this all started with the :first-line on IE 6 today and as I went to make an example to ask about it, I found issues in all the major browsers with different issues.

    If anyone can make any part of this or all of it work cross browser or explain the issue that makes it not work, it would do everyone some good (no really it would )

    p.s. the last paragraph on the page explains the issues
    Stop making things so hard on yourself.

    I seriously doubt IE6 can understand 2 Pseudo-classes like this: a:hover:first-line. That's probably why it's not doing anything when you hover over the link in IE6.

    Yeah, it's because IE6 has very little CSS2 support (if any) and so does not support psuedo-classes such as :first-child or even :hover on anything but links. There may be hacks out there, but hacks are dirty, so I'd say that it's pretty much something you'd have to rethink if you wanted your site to be viewed properly in IE6. Conditional comments are a good method
    "write it for FireFox then hack it for IE."
