[SOLVED] How to get comment link hover colors the same?

Problem solved but not by any normal means. LJ's CSS parser is slightly whacked - gossymer has been having some problems with it, too. So I did exactly what she's been doing lately - I uploaded the style sheet to my own web space. Now I can alter the CSS however I like and it can't stop me. If I'd just done that in the first place it would be 7:30 right about now instead of after 11 at night. Grrrr.


Using an s2 Expressive Mixit style sheet by grrliz

LJ won't let me add or modify CSS I'm trying to use on the comment links hover. When I try to upload the CSS with those codes it times out - LJ's way of telling me 'to go fly a kite', I suppose? I've worked on fixing this on and off for hours. I don't have a clue why I'm having such a hard time...

These are the codes I can't add or change:

#comments a:hover, .comment-odd .comment-links a:hover, .comment-odd .commenter-name a:hover {color: #eec506 !important;} - and many more variations on those - I'm also forgetting other codes I tried that worked; every alteration I try works in Web Dev Toolbar but when I try to upload it to LJ the parser won't let me.

Also, I can't find one single "global comment class" (?) to change the hover color on every link in the comments - without having to modify each individual link's hover color.

I just want every link - on hover only - in every comment to display in just one color - color #eec506. How do I do that when LJ is refusing to accept my changes to any of the codes I try adding or modifying?

BTW, I can make other changes to the comment CSS tonight with no problems - so it's not that the CSS parser is on the fritz - I'm sure of it wait, no I'm not.
