The order that you put them in is important. From the W3C:

"Note that the A:hover must be placed after the A:link and A:visited rules, 
since otherwise the cascading rules will hide the 'color' property of the 
A:hover rule. Similarly, because A:active is placed after A:hover, the 
active color (lime) will apply when the user both activates and hovers over 
the A element."

So try putting them in this order:


Also note that hover won't work in NS4.
