I am making a web page, and my code is correct but the font color is not showing up.?

The color for the inline stylesheet is not showing up for me in IE or Firefox, I have also tried the Hexadecimal version of maroon no luck it just shows up the default Purple. Can anyone see why looking at the code below? <p> <b> <div style="font-family: comic sans ms; font-size: 15pt; color: maroon;"> <ul> <a href="gallery.html"><li>Gallery</li></a> <a href="biography.html"><li>My Biography</li></a> <a href="education.html"><li>My Education</li></a> <a href="resume.html"><li>My Resume</li></a> <a href="contact.html"><li>Contact Information</li></a></br>  </ul> </div> </b> </p>

Best Answer

Your color choice is being overridden by the normal appearance for hyperlinks: blue and underlined. You'll need to specify the style for <a> elements separately and tell it not to "decorate" the text:

a { color: maroon ; text-decoration: none }
