As it turns out, some of the browsers do not respect the 'inherit' property on CSS attributes. I set the CSS anchor attributes (anchors are links to other web items) for hover (the mouse over event which shows you that there is a link there) and several other anchor attributes to 'inherit' the color from the font. In the defective browsers, this didn't work. Apparently, when it didn't work, the browser reverted to the browser's default color scheme for anchors. In most of these faulty browsers, this was a deep blue making it very very difficult to read the text.

I had to define separate CSS attributes for the various tags used to overcome this browser deficiency.

AFAICT, the LMLU was fine until I added the Artist/Album sort capability. This is when I defined the anchor CSS attributes to color: inherit;.

What you should see in the LMLU should look like the Latest Forum Posts. The column headings should be 'gold' on the deep blue header bar and the artists and albums should be white like the font above in the Latest Forum Posts. Long artist names and or album names should truncate. When they do, an ellipsis should be displayed. I'm not convinced that all browsers obey this CSS property either. They should, however, truncate without wrapping in the column.

When in doubt, FireFox.
