Hover the same in Submenus and menus
 
I am going to scream! I have tried everything from making ul's to li's, etc. and I can't find the magic solution to this puzzle! I have a gradient on the main menu, and it's own hover, but I don't want that hover in my submenu too. I want the submenu hover to just be a solid color. I am trying to isolate it by adding a ul hover, among other things, but obviously I am not doing something right. What is it I am doing wrong?!?!?! I'm not sure all you have to look at, but here is the code on the spry css, and link to the site.

/* The outermost container of the Menu Bar, an auto width box with no margin or padding */
ul.MenuBarHorizontal
{
width: 950px;
text-align: center;
margin-top: 0px;

The problem is here:

Code:

a.MenuBarItemHover
{
color: #FFF;
background-repeat: repeat-x;
background-image: url(../images/menu_over.gif);
}
ul.MenuBarHorizontal ul a:hover, ul.MenuBarHorizontal ul a:focus {
color: #FFF;
width: auto;
padding-right: 5px;
padding-left: 5px;
background-color: #FB2600;
}

the background-color property in ul.MenuBarHorizontal ul a:hover doesn't overwrite the background-image property in a.MenuBarItemHover

Try:

Code:

a.MenuBarItemHover
{
color: #FFF;
background-repeat: repeat-x;
background-image: url(../images/menu_over.gif);
}
ul.MenuBarHorizontal ul a:hover, ul.MenuBarHorizontal ul a:focus {
color: #FFF;
width: auto;
padding-right: 5px;
padding-left: 5px;
background-image: none;
background-color: #FB2600;
}
