I am not exactly why this these pages are working correctly in Internet 
Explorer 6.o and not in Mozilla, but it is. The styles for the link hover 
colors are being displayed on basic text and it should not be. I have seen this 
happen at many of my websites including liberalfreeamerica.com and all of the 
links off of caffeine.zeonhost.com. All of these pages are 100% XHTML 1.0 
Transitional complaint with the W3C so I find no reason why they should not 
display correctly.
<a name=".." /> ...grrr this is NOT allowed! -> TechEvang

IE doesn't support :hover on other then links, so this doesn't work there.

&lt;a name="anything&gt;anything&lt;/a&gt; The word anything shows any :hover
effects, should it?

Found this bug when I was working on my website.
I stripped the website to a bare minimum, a good example I think:

This bug does NOT exist and this report is bogus. This issue occurs when
':hover' is used where the designer intended to write 'a:hover' and as such
Mozilla treats ':hover' and 'a:hover' as it should according to W3C standards.

This bug report should be dismissed.

INCOMPLETE due to lack of activity since the end of 2009.

If someone is willing to investigate the issues raised in this bug to determine whether they still exist, *and* work with the site in question to fix any existing issues, please feel free to re-open and assign to yourself.

Sorry for the bugspam; filter on "NO MORE PRE-2010 TE BUGS" to remove.
