I have been working on a page for my company. The site is using WordPress, and is on the company’s internal server so I am unable to provide a link.
Everything was styling as expected until I began styling the sidebar menu. As I added styles to the anchor tags for link, visited, hover, etc. things were looking the way that I wanted in my preview with CSSEdit 2.6. When I began double checking the styles in Firefox 3.10 and Safari 4.0 Beta, I noticed that the anchor styles in my header and footer were being effected by the styles in the sidebar. I specified the styles in the sidebar by calling out the sidebar <div>. The sidebar div is not nested in any way (at least from what I can tell) within the header or the footer except within the overall wrap <div>. The wrap includes minimal anchor styling for general link color, etc.
I have had to override all of the sidebar styles within the header and the footer to put everything back the way it was while maintaining the sidebar styles. I will include some code snippets of the sidebar styles and the footer overrides. I have also includes a few screenshoots of what I am seeing in CSSEdit 2.6 and Firefox. You will have to scroll down to the bottom to see what I am describing in the photos.
