If you set background: transparent to the a:hover for those navigation items, 
it will solve the issue.

Subject: Why does IE show text decoration on these  buttons?


Hello group,

It's another brain fade moment for me, so I hope someone can help me.  

In IE7, the nav buttons are showing a black underline when the mouse hovers
over them, even though I have specifically put text-decoration:none in the
IE style sheet.   (In other browsers the buttons do what they're supposed
to)

Can anyone see what I've missed please?

It should be like this: 

div id=topTop Header.../div
ul
liblah blah blah/li
liblah blah blah/li
/ul
a href=#topback to top/a

And, fyi:
Note that in XHTML 1.0, the name attribute of these elements is
formally deprecated, and will be removed in a subsequent version of
XHTML.

Subject: IE8 bug?



   Hi all,

   I have run in to what seems to be an IE8 bug - IE8 doesn't respond  
to internal links (as in, same page links) on a demo site I'm working  
onyet IE6 and IE7 do!

eg.
a id=top name=top/a
ul
   liblah blah blah/li
   liblah blah blah/li
/ul
a href=#topback to top/a

   I tried Googling and looking back through old posts from WSG but  
can't find anything

Has anyone come across this issue before? (and better yet, come across  
a fix??)

Not sure if this will help, but I suggest using a div instead of an href:

div id=top.../div

ulliblah blah blah/liliblah blah blah/li/ul

I have not used named anchors in ages.

Hope you get it figured!

Hi Christian,

You will find some info about this on the Sitepoint HTML reference
pages, http://reference.sitepoint.com/html/a/href , read down that
page and there is some information about requiring a href reference in
the anchor link for IE. Also as I understand it you don't really need
id= and name=, use one or the other - they complete the same purpose,
although I'm just reading this information from a book and haven't
checked the specification per se.

Cheers,
John Unsworth

Are they business people? Then use business language. Talk about their 
marketing/advertising/ and the budget and the daily work, 24/7, at 
achieving their brand/image that goes on by everyone at the

It looks like the Content-Type for the document is incorrect.  Currently, it is 
set to Content-Type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1.  It should be text/xml or 
application/xml.  In PHP, you can use header to set content type of the 
document.  http://php.net/manual/en/function.header.php  

Sidenote: I use Live HTTP Headers Add on for Firefox to view header 
information.  https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/3829

Actually, I think you're both right!
 
Swami; I'll hazard a guess here and assume you're using Firefox; and you've
 done what I did and gone to http://maps.unimelb.edu.au/sitemap.xml, seen a
 mass of test on screen and saved the file to be confronted with: htmlhe
ad
meta http-equiv=content-type content=text/html; charset=ISO-8859-
1/headbodyurlset xmlns=http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.
9 - at the top of the file. 
 
I almost shudder to say this, but use... internet explorer (I feel 
like I need a wash!) for this; and the file's true structure is seen on scr
een. 
 
If some time presents today, I'll dig around and see if I can find out why 
there's something Firefox can't do better than IE (7 by the way) or if it's
 one of the plugin's I'm running.

ahh - no.

I did change some stuff on the site, but not the xml file - I suspect
whatever you were looking at it with the first time had to put the
html tags around it just to make sense of it.

 Sorry Hassan! It would seem it's been changed.
 Andrew's been beavering away, as one does.

 His original XML file I downloaded from the same URI as you
 did: http://maps.unimelb.edu.au/sitemap.xml, right onto my desktop (it's
 still there), and I believe I probably did that a number of hours before 
you
 looked.
 Sorry for the confusion. Keep breathing.
