I am afraid it will not work.

There is a reason why the sequence for anchor styles should be
a:link-a:visited-a:hover-a:active. A more elaborate explanation is here:
and if you want to know more about 'specificity', Eric Meyer has this
helpful article: http://www.meyerweb.com/eric/css/link-specificity.html

The reason why the OP doesn't see the hover and active styles is because
NN4.xx does not support them.
