I do'nt know if this is the way my browsers are set up or a real problem. I was reading some font advice in the .net mag to use verdana, georgia, tahoma, sans serif; combination. Seems ok but when I use verdana as an underlined link IE6 does not show the underline, Firefox does. Is there a known general problem with some fonts in this context?
I think that your Internet Explorer options are probably configured not to underline links unless you hover over them. A setting that I prefer to use in any browser, though I don't use IE except for testing.
Thanks for that harristweed. I do not know if another font type has the same problem. I will change my CSS and comment it so I can come back in IE7 to recheck (any guessess?). If anyone else cares to experiment please feedback here.
