Default Changing 'menu text' colour on hover

Hi
I'm just wondering if someone can help me - i have just created a spry menu bar, but would like the text (links) to change colour (#EE9ABC) when the cursor is hovering on it...can someone explain to me how to do this please? I have included my current spry coding if that helps...

Thanking you in advance.
Nicole

Code:
 *******************************************************************************/
/* The outermost container of the Menu Bar, a fixed width box with no margin or padding */
ul.MenuBarVertical
{
 margin: 0;
 padding: 0;
 list-style-type: none;
 font-size: 100%;
 cursor: default;
 width: 8em;
}
/* Set the active Menu Bar with this class, currently setting z-index to accomodate IE rendering bug: http://therealcrisp.xs4all.nl/meuk/IE-zindexbug.html */
ul.MenuBarActive
{
 z-index: 1000;
}
/* Menu item containers, position children relative to this container and are same fixed width as parent */
ul.MenuBarVertical li
{
 margin: 0;
 padding: 0;
 list-style-type: none;
 font-size: medium;
 position: static;
 text-align: center;
 cursor: pointer;
 width: 8em;
 height: 3em;
 text-decoration: none;
}
/* Submenus should appear slightly overlapping to the right (95%) and up (-5%) with a higher z-index, but they are initially off the left side of the screen (-1000em) */
ul.MenuBarVertical ul
{
 margin: -5% 0 0 95%;
 padding: 0;
 list-style-type: none;
 font-size: 100%;
 position: absolute;
 z-index: 1020;
 cursor: default;
 width: 8.2em;
 left: -1000em;
 top: 0;
}
/* Submenu that is showing with class designation MenuBarSubmenuVisible, we set left to 0 so it comes onto the screen */
ul.MenuBarVertical ul.MenuBarSubmenuVisible
{
 left: 0;
}
/* Menu item containers are same fixed width as parent */
ul.MenuBarVertical ul li
{
 width: 8.2em;
}
/*******************************************************************************

ul.MenuBarVertical
{

}
/* Submenu containers have borders on all sides */
ul.MenuBarVertical ul
{
 border: 0px solid #CCC;
}
/* Menu items are a light gray block with padding and no text decoration */
ul.MenuBarVertical a
{

Spry menubars are set up to do this using style rules such as ul.MenuBarVertical a:hover

You appear to have somehow deleted a few style rule names from you style sheet

Hi DW course.
Yeh i did - i deleted a section where it was making the 'links' have a blue background and white text on hover.


Would it be possible to show me the correct coding (wording) i would use to add it back in (and where abouts to add it) so that it just changes to colour #EE9ABC on hover?

Your help is very much appreciated!

you need to replace that section , then you can edit the hover colour how you want. open a new instance of it and copy and paste the relevant, section. or start again.
