The Red is your visited state:


	{ color: #990000; }

Is the rule it is seeing. IE and NS are handling it differently because of the way each handles
the rules. Remember the LVHA (love, hate) rule: Specify link, visited, hover, active

a:link { color: foo }
a:visited { color: foo }
a:hover { color: foo }
a:active { color: fooey }

They should all be together. Try that and see if you get better results.
