Well, that is all well and good and I think I follow the reasoning. 
But, for me, I learned a few years ago that the pseudo classes need to 
be applied in one  certain order to work. I remember it like so: LoVe 
HA or LVHA. (link, visited, hover, active) There is a sticky on the 
corner of my monitor with that acronym. Since I learned that, they 
always work. Do it differently and it won't. Simple as that.
