    Spry Menu Bar problem in IE

    68docmartin

      I am using a spry menu bar, which looks perfect in firefox, but in IE (version 6.0) I cannot get the font right for when an item on the menu bar has been visited. The font should stay white, but goes to a light purple colour which is hard to read. The site is www.binscombe.net and the CSS code is below. Any help really appreciated.

       

      Many thanks,
