Hello i am using Dreamweaver 8 to create a simple website and i am having problems with CSS. I am trying to use CSS to basically make a piece of text change colour when the mouse hovers over it. But everytime i try and create it in CSS it just doesnt work. Please can someone help what am i doing wrong?

Here is my CSS code what am i doing wrong i have tried all different ways?
.menu {
font: normal 12px Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
color: #000000;
a:hover {
font: bold 12px Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
color: #FF6633;

Impossible to say, that's just 2 CSS rules. Can you link to your full HTML and CSS page?

That is my full CSS page. What would the code be for a piece of text to change colour when the mouse is hovered over it?

a:link {color: #369;}
a:visited {color: #369;}
a:hover {color: #000;}
a:active {color: #369;}
